File folder BD gift

This is a BD gift mini album, made for my cousin Omayra.  Happy  Birthday "Payasita".
I learned this manila file folder mini from Mzjezzb's, her blog is  I think this is a great idea, for those occasions when you want to do and say something more that just a BD card.  It also allows the person to collect pictures and create their own memories.  I think that is awesome!!  I will upload a video later this week for this project on my YT channel which is ndiaz1969.  Thanks for coming and smiling with me. 

I used my hand made porcelain flowers, and also covered the lower section using a piece of wall paper decoration trim, that I fussy cut.  As you can see here, it goes perfectly with the designer paper used.  I am smiling at this project because I used all my fav colors.  ;-)   

 This is a piece beads spray I have, and it match perfectly in this project.  The green flower doesn't have a!!  yes  but on purpose!  In recognition that not everything is perfect and differences are not disabilities but possibilities.  Viva!!!!!   people with disabilities.   In your honor my friends!!  I try to do things like this on my projects to keep me aware and create conscious.

This is an original creation of my....Umbrellas.  I have always been a fan of umbrellas.  So I made my own.  I search on YT and on the web for tutorials and couldn't find any, so if you know of any one who does them..please let me know, I would love to learn other techniques.  For now, this is my version.  I used fabric, fabric doilies and pieces of wood sticks and pipe cleaners.  I have used them on other projects before and I have two versions of umbrellas, a closed one ( illustrated here), and an opened one.   I am very proud that this is a personal creation.  

This is how the project looks when is opened in full.  It accommodates 4 pockets for tags, (which I made and personalized for her) and 4 areas for pictures.  That's her assignment, jijiji  ;-)  
I love you mamita!!!! Hope you like it as much as I do, to place it in your desk, as a reminder of the blessing of life celebration.   Another year!!!!!!
