Christmas Album

Hi ... How are you? ... 
Things are getting back to normal here ... the shops are full with people looking for a bargain in the sales ... alas I have been unable to join them ... 
I just have a little time to post before my brother and SIL arrive with Ross ... It's been ages since I saw him and I am so looking forward to his visit ... 
You may remember that my sweet friend Kirsty sent me some lovely Pixie Dust Paperie goodies for Christmas ... amongst them were some pretty Christmas papers and stickers ... and I used them to make a little album together with the brown paper lunch bags she sent me some months ago ... I took the idea from a lovely album made by the talented Melissa Samuels ... using 4 lunch bags which gives lots of pockets for putting things into ... lots of photos here




This is the front ... how I love the keys in this kit




all these papers and stickers are from the kit



That gorgeous yoyo was from my friend Jeanneke


How pretty is this rose trim from Pixie Dust? And Kirsty even put in a bag of pretty butterflies


Lots of my frames are cut with my Silhouette as is the reindeer .. and see that beautiful silver crocheted snowflake? Yep, from the talented Jeanneke again


Of course all the papers are double sided so picking what to use is the only problem with these kits ... but  they all co-ordinate perfectly


You can just make out the pockets ... ready to stuff with pictures


And quite by chance ... I see that Kirsty has also made a Christmas album using the new kit "Christmas in Paris" ... so why don't you hop over and take a look at her beautiful work too ...

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... 

Till soon

Beautiful album, Ros! You did a fabulous job as always. I have lots of company until Friday, when everyone goes home. The house is full of laughter and my time is spent cooking and cleaning up in between sitting and listening to the fun. Amy and my son Andrew along with Stephen's wife, Amber have gone to Ikea to get us all shelves on sale. Colin and the rest of us will get them put together and then see if we want more. I hope to get in the craft room today as well. Have a lovely evening and a wonderful Thursday.

How sweet this is Ros, you filled up your album with such pretty papers and elements and still manage to close it again ;-) The key on the front is a pretty addition. Have a great time with your brother and SIL. Hugs, Ira x

This is just so sweet, Ros. I love all those pretty papers and the lace. Ross! That's my son's name. I chose it mainly because it couldn't be shortened, and of course I love it, too.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
