Joy Album
I made this Christmas family traditions album out of a little chipboard accordian album I had laying around. The scans don't do it justice, if I can say so myself.

I'm planning on taking pictures this Christmas and developing them at wallet size to add to it, plus adding the journaling for all of our family traditions.

The first tradition I'm going to add to it?

Playing Christmas music the day after Halloween.

Love it.

Listening to:

Here's the pics of the album... and may I challenge you, whether you're a scrapbooker or not, to pay attention to your family traditions this holiday season. Write them down somewhere, get a little notebook dedicated to such a thing, or make note in your blog. Just get them down- I can't wait to look back at this little book in five years or so and see how our traditions have evolved.

(For some reason I can't get my computer to recognize my camera, but I will post pics later of the album all accordianed out. is that a word? i don't think so.)

the random piece of blue polkadotted ribbon is not actually on that page- it's the ribbon that ties the book together and it snuck under the page on the scanner. sneaky ribbon.
