The last of the mini album

Hello again! As promised, I'm sharing the last of my mini Christmas Traditions album.  I did manage to keep the washi obsession to only one page today!

an old glimmer brad & using up some retired paper too...

finally using some stickles I've had for ages
-a green and red mixture

pulled out the silver glass glitter too!

I managed to pull out some neglected supplies for this project.  I hadn't used the glass glitter in ages and almost forgot how awesome it looks.  I HAD to have this bottle of red and green stickles a few years ago and this is the first time I've used it...  I also used a little more of Be of Good Cheer DSP left over from last year.  I was amazed at how many things I pulled out for this album.  Usually I try to keep everything really simple and don't pull out the fancy stuff, but it was a lot of fun playing with the pretties and not really all that time consuming either.  Once you've brought something out, you might as well keep using it! Maybe that's what happened with the washi... yeah... let's go with that!

We only have a week of carefree days left before school resumes and my girls are determined to fill them with lots of fun activities.  We went to one of the free movies at a local theater this morning and they really want to go to the pool tomorrow.  I'm hoping I can convince them to be crafty on Friday so I can have some playtime too! Wish me luck and happy crafting!!

  1. Oh Margaret, how darling this is! So much love coming from the beautiful family pictures! I love all the little details, from the stickles glitz to the little washi tape - you made this look so homespun and sweet!

  3. I see I've caught the end of a fab project. Definitely want to see the rest. :) This looks fab and I love the design of each page.
    Sorry to be scarce, my FIL passed away last week and life is very full right now. Thanks for always being there! Hugs

  4. More sweet pages, Margaret ! Enjoy the last of summer vacation :)

  5. Great end to the mini, I really like the sparkly border you added around that one photo!!
