Progressive Swap Round 5

We are getting very close to end of this progressive swap that began in September.  This is page 5, which means, one more after this and I will be getting my own album back and I will be sharing it all with you here at my blog.

This album came from Lisa that lives here in my own state of Idaho.  Lisa's album is filled with lots of colors and patterns.  I think everyone has had a lot of fun working on these albums and the closer you get to the end, the more apparent that is because you get to see the style of everyone involved.  Because I am me, I have to try and make what I produce something that follows the style, but tries to stand out as uniquely me.  It's not always the easiest thing to do.  I decided to keep it more simple and tried to only use 2 to 3 colors and patterns.  Here is what I came up with:
Lisa had built her album with different sort of pages than everyone else, and that was fun because it added a new challenge..  I created a pocket for tags as the 1st page.  I decided to add a fun spinner to a chipboard circle I had because I thought it made it look like a clock.  I also added a tab onto the flap so that it stood out a little more.

On the flap I fussy cut a couple butterflies (or moths) and added them as embellishments to go along with the Teresa Collins chipboard verse from my stash.

I applied some ribbon lace along the next page as a place to slip in tags.  Another circle spinner and I spelled out "friendship" in my favorite Websters Pages stickers.

The last flap was perfect for a little paper pocket and tag.  I added some fun flower dimensional stickers from my stash.
