I love this idea! I am so happy that one of my favorite scrappers, Laura Vegas (Laura's Blog) shared this idea with us scrappers. I did it last year Christmas Cards 2009 and just finished this years. Such a cool way to keep the pictures from all the Christmas cards we get.
Here is the front of the folder. I took my favorite pictures from our session and uploaded them to Costco, made a collage and then had it printed. It was super cheap! I'm going to have to do it again. I used Making Memories Noel collection for the entire thing. Wish I had bought all of the accessories, this line is CUTE!
This is the inside of the folder. I couldn't cut up a couple of the cards, they were just too cute to cut into pieces. My favorite card this year was from the Lloyd family. They are so creative and funny!
This is the back. A handmade card that I love and our Christmas card along with a card that wouldn't fit on the inside.
I already put this in our album. I'm starting to get my creativeness back!!
I'm a little sad, I am going back to work tomorrow after having 2 weeks off. Happy to have the time, but sad to go back and then happy to have a job to go back to. We had a nice two weeks off together. I didn't get all my "to do's" crossed off my list but I got a few and that's ok.
All of Christmas is coming down today. I need to refocus on the living room and get it back in order. I have a nice spot to put out our Project Life album so that we can all take part in getting our memories into it. Last year I had it in my scrap area and it didn't get done, now I am going to put it in our living space so we can see it daily. I don't want that out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality this year.

I know this was already posted on this blog--but this is going to be the first picture to start off this fun family album.
We spent a nice evening out with friends then came back and played the Wii. The kids talked me into playing Wii Frisbee Golf--I hate it. I won!! Yay!! But I still hated it. I enjoy bowling much better.
