Handmade Christmas Album

Hi ya friends!
Happy 2011!
During my mini-break from school, I got a chance to work on a couple of projects. This is an album that we started in a class. I had to do most of the work at home since there was so much detail involved, but I absolutely LOVE the way it came out.
Here's the cover:
 I made the banner & rose myself :) Most of the embellishments in this book were handmade, which was one of my favorite things about the class & making this album.

 Here are the 1st & 2nd pages:

 Here's a closer peek at the each page:
 In between each page are inserts. On this page there's an envelope & "Family" tag.
 Here's the 2nd page:

Here are the 3rd & 4th pages:
 The inserts: double-sided photo tag & journaling tag

Closer peeks:

5th & 6th pages:
The inserts: a double-sided photo tag & journaling tag

There's a pull-out tag on the right for more journaling:
 The bottom page: (there's another pull-out tag on the right pocket)
 Here's the back cover:

 The side view: See the crystal danglies! so pretty :)
Even though it took a while to put it together, it was so worth it. It's just beautiful & I'll be so happy to put our Christmas pictures in it.

The album, papers, & embellishments are from Teresa Collins. There are also a few things from Maya Road. Hope you like it & I hope if Scrapbooking seems a bit overwhelming for ya, you'll give these fab mini-albums a go. You'll be hooked!

Thanks so much for peeking today! The good life is over for me & now I've got to get going for school again.
Gotta go!
