6x6 Album With A Twist

Here is a 6x6 Album done with a twist. It is a sample album I made for the CK Convention. Here's the twist- Each page is actually a 6" x 12" page of cardstock folded in half and adhered together on the sides. Each page is a DVD Pocket. There are 12 pages. One for each month of my son's life. We will be burning all of his pictures from each month to a disc and placing those discs into the book. The whole book was done with one Simply Scrappin Kit "Rock-a-Bye Boy". There was lots of designer cardstock and self-adhesive diecuts left so I will probably do another one as a gift. The album took between 3 and 4 hours to complete. I think that's great for an album that has every picture for the 1st year of a child's life :)

Here is the cover and a page showing how the disc is placed.



Here are the rest of the pages:
