Happy Birthday Mini Album

Happy Birthday Mini Album.  I have had some questions regarding this birthday card.  Here are a few more pictures. I am not sure what the technique is called.  We did this technique in a La-La Land Workshop.  You can add more pages.  They are put together in the center.  I leave the top open so as to enclose gift cards or tags.
