Christmas Mini Album

I couldn't wait any longer, I just had to show you this. I was waiting until I got some betters picture's of this but I'm dying to show you all.

I have been thinking about all my albums and I'm not liking how each year my Christmas pages look exactly the same. So I decided that I will start doing some kind of mini album for my Christmas pictures. That way I can use all the pictures instead of just the important ones and not take up half of my album.

So this is the first one I did and as you can see, I was so inspired by Heidi Swapp's Memory Files that I made my own. I have a ton of the manila file folders left over from my Pampered Chef Consultant days and I just covered them with paper and taped them together. I cut one in half and adhered it with washi tape. It was so fun creating it but I did use 2 tape runners :) Oh well, what do ya do.







Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it!!
