Mini Album and Winner Announcement

Good Morning Everyone.  Here in Maine the snow is falling and I am toasty warm inside.  Even when life is stressful, we can find things to be thankful for.

I want to announce the winner from the Paper Piecings By Nikki Fall Celebrations Blog Hop.  The set of three paper piecings made by me is.....

Silvia
from Sil's Stamping, scrapping and stuff blog
 
CONGRATULATIONS, Silvia.  Please send me your name and address and I will get those piecing sent out to you.  jprossfam@gmail.com
 
 
I made this mini album and can't wait to share it with you. I got the cut from the Silhouette site, and cut it out with my cameo.  It is a cut by Lori Whitlock and she has a youtube video to show you how it all goes together.  I loved making this.  Here's what the finished album looks like:
 
The album comes with a little band that holds this accordian file together.  There are so many different ways to embellish.  Here's a look at the back of the album with the band removed.
 
As you can see the back side has plenty of room for pictures or embellishments.  Here's what the inside looks with all the tags in place.
 
I love how the Paper Piecings By Nikki animal faces just sit above the journaling space.  Wouldn't this be a great 'brag album' for Grammie?   Especially of party pictures - or halloween pictures...
 
With the tags removed you can see I left the front a solid blue and then decorated the backs with coordinating paper.  This tiny album has so many surfaces to decorate and embellish. 
 
Nikki has a jungle file, that I would love to do with jungle papers - all the jungle animals...wouldn't that be perfect for a jungle themed party?   A great little keepsake that would fit in your pocket and you'd have to share.  Or how about the disney files she has.  WOW!   A perfect keepsake for that trip to Disney...you could store all your autographs, tickets stubs, etc.
 
Here's a closeup of how I did the pockets.

 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have an inspired Thursday!
 
Here are a few challenges I will be entering with this:
