A New Challenge --- Use a bag or pocket

Well here we are on our second challenge already.  I hope to see a whole bunch of you playing along with us this time.  We have a fun challenge for you this time -- use a small bag or pocket on your page.  Using these for Project Life gives you the opportunity to fill them with extra pictures, memorabilia, receipts or as in my case some hidden personal journaling.
Here is my bag:

You cann see the journal cards peeking out of the decorative bag.  Since this was our anniversary week I wrote a personal couple of notes to my wonderful husband.

Here is my spread together:

And here is each page separately so you can see the detail:

and I really love the large pocket on this page to highlight a special occasion:

For these pages I used Becky Higgins Blush core kit for the 4x6 and 3x4 cards with some Dear Lizzy and Amy Tangerine embellishments which matched the colors perfectly.

So do you think you want to join us for our challenge?  If you do not have a little 3x4 bag, a library pocket or handmade small envelope will also qualify.  If it is personal you do not have to show us but I would love to hear your ideas of what to include in the keepsake bag.  How about a lock of hair from baby's first haircut? Or your grocery receipt?  I love including memorabilia in my PL pages and this is a great way to do so. 
So what do we have for the winner?  This prize for this challenge is:

Echo Park's Photo Freedom series Today's Story collection.  Cool, huh?  Well, put on your thinking caps because you know what they can't win if you don't play.

Here's a review of the rules:
Please link up your project by noon on July 14th.  We will choose and announce a winner shortly thereafter.
