Christmas Emporium Mini Album for My Sheri Crafts

I started this mini album when I was pregnant a year ago and I finally got to finish it in time for Christmas this year. :-D  Other priorities like keeping the baby fed and clean took precedence but now that he has been sleeping through the night, my life has started to get back in order.  Other challenges like the pain in both my wrists kept me off the computer except for a few minutes at a time when I'm at home also put a damper on my blog activities.  Anyhow, there are more projects for me to play catch up with, and this is one of them. :-)  Thank you so much for bearing with me and keeping up with the projects that I have been posting!

I used Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium paper pack and Core'dinations cardstock for this mini album.  The sprays on the cover were from the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby.  The pearls and mini roses are from Prima.  The silk flowers are from Recollections. The paper flowers and leaves inside the mini were made using Cheery Lynn dies.  The crystals are from Recollections, The Paper Studio and Martha Stewart.  I added cabochons that I got from Hobby Lobby, ribbon from Offray and buttons from Basic Grey.  I went a little crazy with my use of the checkered washi tape but I loved the way it looked so much against the colors of the background paper.  I wanted to add more sparkle, so I added Stickles on the pages.

There are so many pockets in this album that I would like to show you and there's going to be a video on the works soon!
