Holiday 2008 Album - Update 1

Here is my Holiday 2008 Album...thus far:

I am still planning to add something to the back of the front cover. In addition, I think I may add a travel schedule page and a November opening page (like the one I created for December, see last photo in this post) to the front of the album.

On this first page I journaled about our search for the "perfect" artificial tree. I am planning to journal our complete abject failure in this endeavor on a later page...
On the back of the first page I added a photo of me working on creating the Holiday 2008 album. I journaled and added the date for this photo on the facing page.

On the back of page 2 I journaled about my husband's and my favorite Christmas carols. On the facing page is a picture of me practicing one of these carols on the piano.
On the back of the third page is a picture of all the ornaments I've purchased this season. On the fourth page is a picture from my Grandmother's house on Thanksgiving day.
The back of the fourth page is a photo from Black Friday. The front of the fifth page is also a photo from Black Friday with journaling for both photos.
On the back of the fifth page I created a pocket with a piece of Rusty Pickle patterned paper. The pocket holds tags with our families' Christmas lists for this year. The sixth page is simply a divider page between the November and December entries.
I'm hoping to post the next update before I start my vacation. I'll post the final update after the new year.
Hope you have a great week!
