Holiday Album

Merry Christmas all! I pray that everyone had a blessed Christmas! We had a wonderful day and enjoyed spending time with friends and family.
About a year ago we became friendly with a couple that lives near my grandmother and over the summer we had an opportunity to visit with them and their daughter, who is the same age as our oldest. Although we met a few years ago I have yet to be able to email photos to her of our children due to some odd issue with our email servers. Months ago while out to lunch with Julie, I picked up a hand full of drink coasters. (You can see what see did with her pile of coasters here.) They've been sitting unused in a pile of junk of my craft room, waiting to be turned into something. I realized that they would be perfect as a mini scrapbook album for our friends, displaying the photos they have yet to see...and miracles or miracles, I was able to finish it in time for the holidays. :-)
Photos of the inside pages and back cover below:

The majority of the materials used on the album are from Stampin' Up! The paper is part of a new series and I just love it! It was perfect to surround photos of a little girl. And I still can't help gushing over SU! rub ons. They glide on so easily you almost don't need to rub. They add such a lovely accent to handmade creations. Foam letters are from American Crafts and small velvet flowers on the first page are from Papertrey Ink. Hope you enjoy and have a delightful and very happy new year!!
