Congratulations Ethan!

Happy Friday Blogland.  It's time for another Totally Papercrafts Challenge.  This week our hostess with the mostest is Linda of Turtle in the Sand.  Linda is a wonderful artist and personal friend of mine.  Stop by her blog and check out her amazing cards then leave her some lovely comments.  This week Linda has us making a creation/card with more than one fold.  I found a splendid tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and I had to make my own!  AJ Otto posted the Accordion file folder tutorial in 2009.  You may have already seen this but I'm fairly new and just found it.
This "Passport" is for my oldest son Ethan.  He turned 18 years old last week and is graduating from high school tonight.  A lot going on in his world right now so I wanted to make him a keepsake of advice from the family and things he has and will continue to learn over the years.  I did not include the sentiments and my mom "blah, blah, blah" in the photos.  But each tag has writing and sentiments for him.  Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp.  You could win a $25.00 gift voucher to their store just for entering your creation!
Stop by Totally Papercrafts and visit my wonderful DT teamies creations for more awesome inspiration and join us at this weeks challenge!
Enjoy your weekend and Happy Crafting!

What a clever idea, really love this one and I'm sure your son will too. My son turns 18 this year too & as you say there is so much going on in their lives, so I'm sure he'll add bits to his passport as he progresses in life. Jx
