Cereal Box Mini Album

Here is the album I made today. I was inspired by my friend's monthly kit challenge. I used all papers from Die Cuts With a View. They had put out a paper pad called The Christmas Combo 180 Stack. It is 3 of their stacks in a combination pad. I used many of the prints in this little book I am giving to my mom.
For the front page, I used fibers to tie it together and used a few of them for a little border along the edge of the binding. I got my inspiration from a Christmas Carol. The wording for this front page says:

Christmastime is here
Happiness and cheer
fun for all that children call
their favorite time of year

For page one, I wanted to keep it pretty simple, so I covered the back of the title page with pp and then added the next verse to the song. It says:

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
of love and dreams to share

The next page I have in the book is where the photo's begin. The photography was taken by Angels Touch Photography in November 2010. This photo is of Maddie and Kenzie wearing their Christmas Jammies holding the scrapbook I was working on for Amanda. It was not finished here, but I wrapped it up and used it for a present in the pics.

Here is the family picture page. Love the way it turned out :)

On this page we have Kenzie who was really a hammm that night! The wording to the song continues on this page:

Sleighbells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
and joyful memories there
On the last set of pages, comes the pic of Maddie kissing Mommy. The wording finishes off here:

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year

And the last page with a picture of me and Kenzie. We signed the page Merry Christmas Nana and Papa Love, Ryan, Dawn, Kenzie and Maddie

This is a shot of the back of the book just so you can see how the binding wrapped around the back of the book.
