Christmas Book

For Christmas I decided to make a christmas scrapbook for my Mum and Dad, as they live 3 hours away from us they miss out on some of the little things my boys get up to at Christmas time. By the time we see them on Dec 27th I should have filled in all the empty spaces I left for photos. I bet I'll want to keep it though!!!

Over at CRAFT challenge this week the challenge (challenge 78) is to make a Christmas present, so this is my DT project. The winner will the win the gorgeous Snowglobe digi image from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs, which I've used on one of the pages of my book.

Here's my little book:

I still have to finish the other pages, so there will be more to follow....
The book that I used is a chipboard one ready made from Papermania. The Snowglobe image is from The Crafty Pad and coloured in with Promarkers. The letters are stickers from Papermania, the red heart buttons are from Doodlebug, the silver and white paper and card candy are from Craftwork Cards, the green paper is what I won and the other things are from my stash.
