I Finally Finished My 1st Mini Album

We're having a family reunion in July, I thought I would try making a mini album with my bind-it-all I got for Christmas. This is my mom's family her sister and brothers. I added the names of all their kids and grandkids and their birthdays to each page. I'm going to give it as the door prize at the reunion.
I used Graphic-45 papers for most of the album. The front and back cover are from another stack.(I'm not sure the name of it.)
I used cereal boxes and cut them 6" x 6". I tried to give most everything a vintage feel, Inking the edges of all the paper. The only cricut cuts are the scalloped circles and on the last page, I cut MEMORIES. CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO MAKE IT LARGER.
I'm not sure about the ribbon and fiber. Also I don't know how I should decorate the cover, should I add flowers? Let me know what you think, I love comments! Shari
