Here is my project for today's hop:

I made this mini file folder album for a swap with Girls, Giggle, Glitter, and Glue (a private scrapbook group) on Facebook. The first picture is of the cover. First of all we were to use 8.5 x 11 manila file folders and follow a YouTube tutorial. I followed Taylored Expressions.  I used Mambi Sunshine 12x12 scrapbooking paper pad. The shell and dream land stickers are stickers I bought from a beach collection I found at Dollar Tree. The Summer block & tab Sleep on the Pier I cut out of Pebbles Lakeside 6x6 paper pad. The blue strip on the side is Duck tape.

This inside paper is Recollections Flips Flops paper. The Sunshine paper is from the Mambi Sunshine pad. The arrow sticker is from my stash. The sunglasses & sand stickers are from the same sticker collection above from Dollar Tree.

Here is the tags individually: The paper is Recollections Water 12 x 12 paper. The ribbon is American Crafts. The stickers are from Sticko Beach collection.
 The paper on this tag is from Oriental Trading Company beach collection. The ribbon is American Crafts. The stickers are also Sticko Beach collection. The flamingo, flip flops, and palm tree stamps are Recollections & I used Recollections markers to stamp them with.
This is the next spread of the album. The yellow/orange paper is from the same Mambi Sunshine pad. The umbrella paper is from Oriental Trading Beach collection. The hat sticker is from Sticko Beach collection.
Here are the tags for this spread: The paper on this one is Recollections Aqua. The sunscreen sticker is from Sticko Beach collection. The other stickers are from the Dollar Tree sticker collection as before. The ribbon is Martha Stewart Crafts.
The paper on this tag is from Oriental Trading Beach Collection and the stickers are from Sticko Beach collection. The ribbon is from my stash.
This is the back cover using the same paper as the front from the Mambi Sunshine pad.
This is the finished product after I added Martha Stewart Crafts ribbons & a clothespin from stash to keep the ribbon tied.

Maybe we were just saving the best for last. This is quite a project and screams summer! And that's certainly when the bugs come out, isn't it. Enjoyed seeing all the components!

Thanks, Sarah, but I made this for a swap. I made it for someone else so she can add whatever she likes. She made one for me, but I didn't post it on my blog since she made it.
