Wanted to share my holiday album

So here are a few of the pages from my holiday album. I have loved putting this together using up my stash, and even finally tackling the clear album fear that I had.... sheesh not nearly as intimidating as I thought.

There are several more pages to be built and of course the spine to doctor up with ribbons etc. I will share new pages as they are completed.

The inside cover bears then names of our family that will share in the joy of the holiday season.

This page lifts up and there is a letter to my family that expresses my hopes that this will be the beginning of a wonderful new tradition. Thanks to Ali Edwards for the concept of this mini album.

Anyone recognize these Seven Gypsey letters? They are several years old as I discovered them in Salt Lake. It feels good to use the stash.

I bought bags and bags of decorative buttons when they first came out had no idea what to do with them but I do now!
My lesson for 2008.......... Never say never. Who would have thought that Trisha Ladouceur could convert me to a flower child and lets not mention the use of Glimmer Mist.

Stickers may not be the hottest trend going at the moment but pull out your stash add some ink, bling a button or two and of course Glossy Accents and you have a great new embellishment.

Of course what is a book without some hand drawen doodles. Get out those pigment pens and create create create! Stamping, inking and drawing on those Primas makes each flower unique to your book and will reflect who you are.

Hope you are inspired to share your holiday traditions and activities with those you love.

It looks great... I am trying to use up some stash too and I think that this year will be my year of mini albums!

Thanks for the inspiration!
