Revamped Graphic45 Place in Time Mini Album

Hello my dears,  I made a mini Album last week using some Graphic 45 papers called Place in Time.  I made it first with the idea of holding it together using large metal binding rings,  but when I finally managed to find the rings I just didn't like how it looked. 

So I had a dilemma !!!!!!  I had already punched all the holes for the rings (here is an example) 
how do I save this album and make it more beautiful!!!!

Easy Peasy!!!  re-do the front & back covers, make a spine with and accordion page holder, take all the pockets off of each page and cut off the side with the 3 punch holes. Bwaaaaaaaaaah!!!!

I only lost about 1/4" from the side, which gave me an opening to attach to the page holder.  Anyway if you scroll down you will see my now revamped and much prettier mini album. 

Below is the revamped Album

Front Cover of album which has been decorated with various mediums, Memory Box honeycomb stencil,  Cheery Lynn small flourish die, Martha Stewart Butterfly punches. Heartfelt Creations Vintage morning background flower stamp and Vintage morning Die. Wild Orchid Crafts small roses.

Top View of album, all pages have been distressed with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.

Front of album with pages opened out for photograph.  

Here is January-February-March-April pages with photo mounts, tags and cut outs from the Place in Time Collection.

May-June-July-August with Photo mounts,  tags and cut outs from the Place in Time Collection.

September-October-November-December with photo mounts, tags and cut outs from Place in time

I do hope I haven't bored you too much,

Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!!!! This is a fabulous work!Love everything in it all the details and layouts... better to cut the three holes, now this mini is very elegant!
I'd like to make myself one too. Could I tell you where I can buy the patterned papers? After I'd seen your work I made a reserch on internet but I wasn't able to find the 6 x 6 paper pad. Thanks for the help! :)
