Paper Primper Christmas Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Today is my day to show off what I've created for the Paper Primper Christmas Blog Hop.  You should have arrived from Paper Primper Altered Art .  If you just happened upon my blog be sure to start back at the beginning!

I decided to try my hand at a paper bag album.  I found a couple of tutorials since I have never attempted this project before.  I have to admit I'm addicted!  I plan to make many many more of these!  I followed THIS tutorial and then went to her ustream to see how she decorated it.  VERY easy to follow.

I decided to make this album for our family gift exchange this year.  I have a HUGE extended family and each year for Christmas we rotate who hosts our big family party.  Well I collected the family pictures from each year from 1999 - 2010 and put them in order in the album, leaving room for the recipient to add their own pictures.  We'll see if it's a big hit this year or not!

The front cover

Each page has a chipboard piece that pulls out for more pictures.

 One of the pages.  The blue strip is also a pocket.

Another chipboard page.

The entire album finished and opened up.  There are enough pages to go to 2014!

Thanks for stopping by!  Now hop on over to Kacee and continue on our hop!
And be sure to check back on Friday to see projects from all of the designers!
