Friends with FLAIR!!

Hi there....thanks for visiting! Boy, do I have something fun to share with you today!  So, if you know my blog, you know most of the things you see here are cards, well, once in a while a layout, or a little 3D project, but today I am sharing something that I haven't done in ages, a MINI ALBUM!!!

The way this came about was so fun.  I got a sweet design team package from Samantha Walker last Thursday and she included a few fun items from Creative Imaginations and out fell this mini Christmas tree shape chipboard album.  I kid you not, but an idea came to me, I was INSPIRED and within minutes I started working on it.  I didn't even have  my pictures developed, but picked them up the next day and I was done with it in a day!  I shared it on the Scrap-mart blog last Sunday, as it was my day, but today I am sharing it here, in case you don't frequent the Scrap-mart blog (and I am shocked, if you don't....LOL).

Just a few days before this package arrived, another package arrived from Scrap-mart, as I ordered a few Samantha Walker Unity stamp sets and again, that is how this album happened.  There are also a lot of Silhouette digital cuts on this, some are Samantha Walkers and some are not.  But here are the stamp sets I used, in case you would like to make something like this.

Greetings of Christmas
With all my Heart

And here is what the mini looks like together....  All papers are October Afternoon!!!  It's really not Christmas pictures, except for one, but it's shows what gives me Joy around Christmas and every day!

And here are all the pages individually.


So, what do  you think????  I really love the way it turned out...certainly puts a smile on my face!

Thanks for visiting and have a FABULOUS hop!
