Christmas Album, Tombow Love, and Water


A few nights ago I stayed up until 2:30 am making this Christmas album, it's a work in progress. I've taken Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class for 3 years now, but never made my journal beforehand. I am also signed up for Jessica Sprague's Holidays in Hand (registration closed).




I had this 7Gypsies album from CHA a few years ago, so I altered it with Christmas papers and ephemera.


 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So it's the barebones, and I can't wait to continue adding to it in December.



In the spirit of giving, if you see on my sidebar, I have a new charity via Socialvibe: Water. It's SUPER EASY. You don't have to give money. All you have to do it click and complete a simple activity such as write a note to a person about to go back to work sponsored by CoffeeMate or create a Colgate smile, then Coffeemate donates the money for the digging of wells. If you could click and contribute to my charity!!! ----------->>>
THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!


Also a big thank you to Tombow and Joanna Wallace! I got a super cool surprise this morning in my email that my name was drawn to win a Tombow Dual Brush Pen Set so be sure to fan Tombow on Facebook.

OMG I love that album so much! I've been wanting to do another mini...maybe when I get done with my mom's album. Congrats on the win...those are always cool surprises, aren't they? (I just won an RAK from Kenner Road too...totally made my day)

This is so great! You are ready to go. I like the precious tree on the front cover and all your pretty paper on the pages.

What a lovely album! I love it. I bet it will be just beautiful with all of your photos in it. I'm always in awe of scrappers who can decorate the pages before they have the photos. I have to start with the photos.

Thanks for mentioning Tombal Dual Brush Pen Set. It looks like a lot of fun. I'm headed to facebook next. Then I'll come back and check out your water charity.

What a beautiful album! That type of creativity escapes me, so I especially admire it in other people. It will be a treasure for years to come, for sure!
