Lasting Memories April Fools Challenge- Hidden Pictures or journaling

Another month has come and gone and its already April 1st. Today for the April Fool's Challenge at Lasting Memories the challenge is to show your hidden journals or photos.  I had so many wonderful pics of our day at Long Beach Aquarium with our three granddaughters recently.  Although we love ocean animals our favorite thing that day was the Larakeets.  I was so surprised how much Katie and Kenzie loved the birds and that they weren't scared of them at all. So rather than the 4 pictures you see on each page of this double page layout.  The first page actually has  12 pictures on  the page.  I accomplished this by making a small booklet that opens at the top of the page so you can hang it over the page protector.  The third and fourth pictures show the pages open in various stages.  
I used Tim Holtz letters colored with Alcohol Inks for the title
A MS leaf punch and leaf border punch
The paper is  South Seas by Creative Imaginations
I hope you enjoyed this idea and I can't wait to see what the other DT members create for this challenge. I always love ideas for getting more on pages.  
The sketch idea for this week is below.  Remember to join the challenge you must do a layout with hidden journaling or pictures.  If you would like to you can use the sketch but it is not mandatory.  I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.  Happy craftin!

  5. Now that is COOL! How creative! I made a booklet once, but I didn't take the PP into consideration and now you have to remove the page to open it. I love this idea and what awesome pics!
