The Great Outdoors Book

Hi friends,
Today, I wanted to share a really cool accordion panel book. I picked up (along with a matching book) at the Scrapbook Expo from the Pine Cone Press Booth (yes, a few months ago :(  Over the weekend, I finally completed it! It has a real rustic feel to it :) and when I saw it, I thought it would be *perfect* for all our Big Bear pics. We go every year & have lots of pics to fill it with.
Here's the cover:
(I'm going to apologize ahead of time, but lighting was wonky & this is a looooong book to photograph! It's over 3 feet long)

Then it accordion outs like this:
There are 8 panels to this book & each panel is embellished. Each panel is bound together with twine for an added rustic feel.
Here are the first 2 panels:
The brown mat on the 2nd panel serves as a mat & is also a pocket.

Here are the next 4 panels:
The parts that look like tree bark are made with corrugated cardboard. Lots of mats for pics :)

Last few:

Here's a few deets on a couple of the panels:
This is a pocket page (with tag).
This one holds a couple of tags.

Each panel is also a pocket page in itself that conceals a place to tuck in another big tag for more pics and journaling!

and finally here's the back---> uh huh, more room for pics! luuuv it!
This is one of my fav books. It took a long time to make, but I luuuv how it turned out! Now, to get going on the matching book :{
Thanks so much for peeking!
Gotta Go!
