Interactive (To the Max!) Layout

I have been having so much fun since Close To My Heart's Magic book came out. Magic is full of beautiful layout patterns with all kinds of fun interactive options. The one-page layout I am sharing today was designed by Naomi Smith, but I sort of did my own take on it. It was based on some ideas she had seen in Magic. Believe it or not, there are 32 photos on this one-page layout. Are you flipping kidding me? Nope, I'm not! Another cool thing about this layout is that it was made using the Hooligans kit, but it is not a Halloween layout. These designs and papers are equally cool for "birthday party", "celebration", or just plain "fun" layouts.

This layout was made using very few supplies. In fact, these supplies are all I used: Hooligans Level 1 Scrapbook Kit (X7129A), Lagoon Mini-Medley (Z1340), Licorice Opaques (Z1335), 12" x 12" Flip Flaps (Z1325), 12" x 12" Memory Protectors (4110), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151), Magic Book (9034). The flip flaps are what make the 2 side panels on this layout open.

The photos aren't the absolute greatest because it was easier for you to see how the layout works by seeing it in the protectors. As always, feel free to click on any photo to see it larger and in more detail. Oh, and thanks to my friend Leslie for being the 'hands' while I took the photos.
Photo above: I cut a slit in the protector and paper on the inside right flap (see photo above to see this interactive tag in it's 'place'). This way the tag can slide in and out of the layout and still be protected.
-------------------Photo Above: There is more to this little tag than meets the eye! Can you see how many photos I was able to add by making this an accordion tag? You see 4 here....
Photo Above: and then when you turn the accordion tag over, there are another 4. Talk about space well used!
Photo Above: Just when you thought there couldn't be anything cooler than what you've already seen on this layout, I've got something MORE to show. If you look at the upper right photo in the center section of the layout, you'll see this cute photo of me making treats with my little granddaughter, Daci. There is a ribbon that ties around it, for GOOD REASON! Keep reading...

Photo Above: When you untie that little ribbon, you find another accordion. WOO HOO! I have photos on the front side...

Photo above: and on the back side!

If you go back and look again at the photo of the layout with both flaps open, you'll see that I added another interactive tag that tucks in on the left inside flap. This layout is full of surprises...or should I say Magic?

I love this layout and I love that you fit the whole two weeks on one layout! I might have to copy every last thing and make my own :)

This could really speed up my scrapbooking if I did layouts with 32 pictures on them! Wowzers! I LOVE yours! So great to see Hooligan in a non-Halloween way! :-)

WOWIE! That book is so stinkin' fun, and you really took full advantage of it! I love that you used Hooligans. I saw so much more than Halloween in that paper! It's great to see some artwork from you again!
