Christmas Album

Hello Friends

Oh My Goodness!  It is December....the start of the Silly Season and boy is it a cold one!

I promised you I would show you my Christmas Album today and whilst it is still 1st December here it is.....

The front looks a little plain and hessianish at the moment because I keep decorating the front cover as the final job on my Christmas Albums.

Here is inside page 1.....
Open the little string and brad catch and you get this.....
Lots of "pages" to either include photos of the day (the largest page is 6.25 x 4.25 so I can print a 6 x 4 picture to include), or journal, or add labels, quotes etc.  There is also a #8 tag to "play" with. This page 2 and shows a slightly different closure,
In case you are wondering what this is all about, every December (this is the fifth now) I make an album with a page for every day of December whether it be photos or journalling or something else.  I really enjoy making these as they are lovely to look back on later.  If you like I will share some pictures of the previous albums with you.

And here is my photo for today.....

Boofle has now been reunited with his hat and tag, the Advent Candle has been lit and we are watching The Santa Clause movie on TV.

Happy December All.

That's very pretty - what a lot of detail you've included there. Sounds like you've got Christmas pretty well wrapped up :) xx

How gorgeous is this?! I even rather like the front cover just as it is, rustic, snowy and with that pop of red - but I can't wait to see how it progresses... wonderful work so far!

Sounds like Christmas has arrived in the Hettie household then. Bet you are counting down the days just like my DD!!!
Love Love Love the look of your Xmas album. How organised are you having it all made ready to fill. I've done these in previous years but hadn't thought about it this year. Might have to take the photos and write the journalling and put it together in the New Year. Will see how I feel tomorrow!!!!
Hope you are keeping warm.
Hugs Lisax
