This is the project I've been working on for the last few days (in between making a mess with my reorganisation)!! Last year I made a double scrapbook layout of our Christmas, but this year I had more photos I wanted to use, although none of them were exactly great. My solution was to make this little book which is about 8 x 6 and I didn't have to buy anything at all, I just used up all the scraps of Christmas materials and papers I had left from previous years. I'm quite good at this thrifty thing .... I've had years of practice!!

The cover paper is Basic Grey, as are some of the inside pages, but I also used stuff from a pack of Christmas stuff I'd had for ages. Quite a few of the ribbons on the spine were recycled from Christmas itself, and the green flower charm came out of my cracker! I've just included a couple of sample pages to give you an idea.

Hi Rosie - what a great project - it really looks good and you get the added satisfaction of making it from items you already had in your supplies. Also, the ribbons and flower (and where they came from) add to the personality of the project.
