A 6x6 Mini Page to Share

I just completed this page for a swap that's going to be a gift for a special someone.  (Shhhh, I can't say).  We were told we could create any page we wanted--any style, so I went with a beach theme (seeing that it's summer).  The page is actually 4 pages in one!   I used a sheet from a Flap Album (remember my Easter mini album using the Flap Album pages?) and covered the pages with designer paper.  Take a look and share your thoughts.   I hope the recipient likes it. 

This page opens from the left to right.  I cut the shell border from The Slice, then embossed it.  I created 2 tags and added a mini starfish (real one) and a sanddollar sticker.  The title is from Jolee's.
Here's a closeup of the border:

The above page is the flap (with the border) opened up.  I used a sand castle and chair diecuts along with a heart doily that's been Glimmer Misted.  I added a rub on saying and a simple tag.  The left side is left blank for photo(s).

The above tag shows the front stamped with shells.  Here's the back of that tag:

This is the middle of the flip out page.  I created the 'sand castle' and used it as a pocket.  I cut out a wave from a textured sheet of paper and inserted a tag that has embossed sand dollars and a shell sticker (3D)
Below shows more detail of the tag.
This is the back of that tag that sits in the sand castle pocket:

This page (above) is to the left of the sand castle.  I used a vintage style journaling page and a sticker that I used as a pocket to hold another tag.  Another 3D shell sticker is used to help pull up the tag.

I forgot to show you the back of the tags that sit in the shell border:
And here is the front of the tag that sits in the flip flop pocket:
It's very simple to allow room for journaling or a photo.  The bottom photo shows the back side of this tag:

And here's the back of the mini page:

This can be used for photo(s); journaling and is also a pocket for more photos and or journaling!

Thanks for looking!
