For the center of the cover I started the center and added a shadowbox with sand and shells, but then I went crazy around that and put more shells, glued sand around added some beads and some fishermans netting.I also stained the bottlecap with blue ink

I had to have some to keep the book closed so I simply took a piece of twine and made a round circle large enough to fit around the bottlecap.
The album was made from this which I won from Scrapbook.com last year along with other items from Paper House! SO COOL! The album I carefully separated the frame apart so that became my front and back of the album. The flip part was on the inside. Then I used the packaging and cut it to make two inner pages using the side of the package for the frame. Wish I took pictures, but at the time I didn't know how it was going to turn out.
Inside of the book has a fold out and pull out pictures.
The two center pages was the flip album packaging repurposed!

The two center pages have pull out pictures as well.
By adding a sheet of cardstock to the packaging I was able to create the pockets that hold 4x6 pictures.
One of the pull out pictures has journaling the uses the word never FORGET
Thanks for looking and as always I love reading your comments.
