Christmas Accordian Memory Book

I got this idea from a cool album that I got from texasjodylynn. I decided to create my own similar item, using a winter/christmas theme, and then leave the pages inside blank to add christmas photos and journaling.

I used fun winter paper as the background and paired it with some almost amythest SU cardstock. The image is from SU "It's Snow Time" and is watercolored using a blender pen and the lid of the ink pad. I think I only watercolored using going grey and then only orange for the noses. I really like the soft look it has and since the background paper had grey dots - I thought it would work. In the sideview photo, you can see how a paper accordian was created. Off of each of those on the inside is a page in the book. I stamped "Be Merry" on the bottom of the front cover in going grey using the "Warm Words" set. I think it finished it off really well. All in all, I was pleased with the result of this and got lots of positive feedback on it.
