25 DOC - Day 25 - Our Christmas Story

Every Year I make my husband (Axel) something handmade, as well as something store bought and something to fill his stocking.  Last year I made a grunge-style ornament.  This year I made a mini album using Pink Paislee's "City Sidewalks" Collection, to document the first 10 years of our relationship (including before we were married).  

The title of the album, "Our Christmas Story", is perfect because his favorite movie is "A Christmas Story" and our tradition is to watch it on Christmas Day.  So I know he'll appreciate the thought that went into that.

I left the 10th year blank because I wanted Gio and I to be the ones to make it together, this way he'll be able to feel included in the making of Our Christmas Story. 

I hope you enjoy the peeking through the photos, but make sure you read the end of this post carefully.

I used Lindy's Stamp Gang products to decorate the flowers and leaves 
that you see on the cover and throughout the book. 
The sprays are just so beautiful and add the perfect color and sparkle to anything!!

Lindy's Stamp Gang was gracious enough to offer TWO "Try Me Sets" for this event,
and 1 of the sets will be going into the 1st Grand Prize!!  How exciting!!!

I love adding flips and secret pockets in my mini albums.
You can see more in the video below.

Here's a video showing more details of the mini album.

Or you can click on THIS LINK and view it on youtube.
