Non-Traditional Christmas Album

This has been quite the undertaking. I made this album for a dear, sweet friend and decided that " I " would come out of my box and make it bigger than I have done before. It's a 9" X 10" paper bag mini that has tons of room for photos and journaling. I wanted non-traditional colors so the entire album is done in blues and browns, golds and coppers. (I snuck in a teeny tiny bit of green and red.)Its filled to the brim with tags, dies, charms and embellies and I am just hoping she will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed creating it. We agreed not to exchange anything for Christmas around the season as we were both so busy....we thought "after" Christmas would be just as fun. Sooooo two months it is. Finished (well almost) and ready to mail off to her. I'll do a vid sometime this keep checking my Youtube (Yorkieyodaldog) and hopefully with my new camera and editing, I'll get it on there this weekend...Thanks for stopping by...:o)

Jann, I am totally in love with this beautiful mini! The colors are so pretty and you picked the perfect combination of papers. The embellishments are so lovely and the tags are, as always, perfect. Great job. I am sure the lucky gal that will be getting this mini can see how much love you put into this project. She sure is lucky. ;-)
