Album & Mini signs

So in the December Chance of Flurries Kit at Love Is In The Details you receive a Maya road chipboard album (Maya Road Chipboard Classic Frame Scroll Coaster Book on a Chain or Maya Road Chipboard Square Scroll Coaster Book on a Chain)...OMG this is the perfect to make a mini album for yourself or as a gift. There are a million uses for them! With mine I made a mini album and then used the leftover pages to make mini advent signs for the boys to count down to Christmas.
Here is my album:

Advent calendars for the boys

Last weekend I was in Miami, Manitoba cropping...well maybe not cropping more like chatting, eating and hanging out with the greatest ladies ever!!! What a blast! So I got one layout done..yep that is it one layout. It was using a sketch that was provided for us at the crop!
Oh and I did have a blast playing with these Maya Road Tree's with Lisa. They are so much bigger then I thought and you get so many chipboard pieces. After playing with Maya Mist I will never use paint again!! It is so much faster and so pretty!!!!! My tree is not done but here it is so far!
Hope you have a great day!!!!
