Cute little Christmas album 2015

Hiya!
How goes your Christmas or other holiday plannings? Can you believe Christmas is just a week away? This whole year has zipped right past me. Seems like I was just picking out my son's Halloween costume a couple weeks ago.  Any way... my son's teacher asked if I'd help put together a classroom holiday party. Of course! And everything came together really nicely! And then the morning of the party I woke up at 3am and decided I needed to put a cute little album together as a gift for his teacher.  LOTS of pictures follow:































A-n-d..... there it is. Not bad, right? I worked on it from 3am until about noon. I was able to get dressed, wrap the present (thank goodness for gift bags!!) and still get to the school on time. {phew!}

The size of album: 6"x6"....  The pages are 5.75" x 5.75". The album binding is the Hidden Hinge by Kathy of Paper Phenomenon. Including the inside of the front and back covers there are 10 pages. plus the flaps that lift or open. Each page was designed individually. I made a list of 10 page styles and checked off my list as I made them so I wouldn't duplicate. I didn't follow anyone's specific instructions though I have seen my fair share of videos on YouTube and elsewhere. So I will thank Kathy King/PaperPhenonmenon, Kona Raven, Scrapbook Maven, My Creative Spirit and many, many more of you who have shared your talents and idea!

Hope you all have a fantastic Christmas, or which ever holiday you celebrate, and a safe and happy and blessed New Year!
