13-Lasting Memories Challenge #64- Hidden Journaling

So excited today is my sweet little model Kenzies 1st birthday party.  So hard to believe she just turned one.  Today will be heavenly for me all three granddaughters in one place for the day.  I will be in grammy heaven.
So Happy Birthday my sweet Kenzie and off to my post-
Hi its time for another Lasting Memories Layout challenge and this week the challenge is "Hidden Journaling".  I am really thrilled this is the challenge this week.  Last weekend I attended the Scrapbook Expo in Ontario, Calif.  I took two classes and one was with Blog Quick Quotes.  During the class we learned to make a mini book for pictures and journaling.  I absolutely loved this idea and couldn't wait to try it on a layout of my own.  
So here is my double page layout which looks like a 4 picture layout.  Actually there are 11 pictures on these two pages.  The background paper is Hello Fall by Paper Creations.  The leaf paper is from a stack from last year.  The title Fall Fun is Tim Holtz chipboard letters colored with Alcohol Inks.  

The first page is two pictures of my granddaughter.  The leaf border is cut from paper and the leaves are from a MS punch.  
This is the second page where the hidden pages are.  
This is what the mini book looks like.  Notice it is at the top edge.  
The book is made of  4 pages 6 x 12 inch.  Each page is folded in 1/2 and glued so that they 
 over lap in the center making 4 flaps.

So we would love to see how you hide your journaling. Get your craftiness on and let's see your layouts.  
 I love seeing all the creative ideas.  
I am also entering this in Amanda's Crafts and More Challenge- to make a  thankful layout.  I am very thankful for the time I get to spend with my family and especially my granddaughters.  They are such a blessing to me. 
Also I would love to read your comments.  Happy craftin!
