Christmas Gift

Hi all

It is that time again over at Paper ala Mode, Outlawz.  The theme this week is to produce a gift for Christmas.  I chose to make another teeny album for one of my daughter in lawz.  I used up some of my scrap papers and scraps of ribbon for the decoration byt the main base for this album is toilet rolls.  How cheap was that lol.  I decorated the front with a few flowers and a charm which in its previous life was an old necklace of my daughters.  I found this lying around all tangled up like you do!!!  Its good as I found a use for it ..... The tags are plain for either journalling or photos and I have attached various scraps of ribbon using a normal stapler.  A totally recycled project... yayyyyyy

Anyway here are the pics and don't forget to hop on over to the Outlawz and join in the fun with us. 


  1. This is awesome sweetie. Really pretty. I saw you over at MIM and had to pop over for a closer look and I am glad that I did.


  2. Elaine this is just gorgeous. Love the colours and embellishments. All the elements work so well together. I saw this on MIM and just had to pop over to have a closer look.
