December Mini Album

Remember all of those pictures I took in December? I tried to do something Christmas-y or fun as a family every day of the month, and I put them together in an interactive mini album.

I really like it. It's a great keepsake to remember these years when Christmas is SO exciting!

I made all of the pages different sizes, used envelopes, pockets, tags, accordian fold mini albums within pages, etc. to make it interactive and capture some of the fun we had (also, I took too many pictures, so I had to fit them all in).

This gives you a sense of the layers.

 Christmas parties

Decorating Gingerbread Houses and Men

 Tree selection and decorating

Christmas light displays

winter traditions and comforts and putting up the lights on our house

New experiences (tasting hot chocolate) and favourite recipes

 more traditions ( a new advent calendar house)

 spending time together

and another light display

I'll share the rest in another post.....
