Hello Christmas Mini Album

Hi everyone! How's your December going? We decorated our tree last weekend, and I found my favorite Putz-style ornament from when I was young. It's pretty battered, but I still love it. :) I think I may have to make one this year.

I'm on the Glitz blog today with my mini album cover. I have some photos of my daughter from Christmas time a few years ago, and I started on a mini album for them.

Here's the cover:

I love that picture of her. :) For the base, I used some Craft-a-Board, painted it white, and added some mist. I did not punch holes in it yet for the O-rings...I haven't decided if I'm going to use two rings or three. ;)

For the papers and embellishments, I wanted to use non-traditional colors. I started with the chalkboard paper from Glitz Design's Uncharted Waters Paper Pack 2 and cropped it to remove the decorations on the paper.

On the chalkboard paper, I stamped the pine branch twice and the sentiment from the Glitz Hello December digital brushes. I also used the same set to stamp the little deer in the corner. These brushes are awesome!  Here's a close-up:

The pink zigzag paper is from the Uncharted Waters Paper Pack 1. It's such a pretty pink!

In the upper-left corner of the cover, I recolored the "holiday" sentiment from the Hello December Element Pack 1 from red to pink. I made another pom pom (I'm addicted!) and added a Giant Rhinestone from the Finnley collection. Here's a close-up:
