Fav Colors....

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is Favorite Colors!  I love blues and browns together.  For this project I chose to go with denim blue and brown for my Miniature Christmas Photo Album.  

This little album celebrates my daughter's 5 Christmases with her husband and Lucy...and now Cass!   

Our challenge is sponsored by Ink on 3 and the Pansy Tea SVG Kit has a perfect little purse that made a great album cover.  I made a few modifications.  I chose to make it a little more rustic/country so I used the reindeer in lieu of a bow and added metal studs to the straps.  I cut a second set of pieces for the back since my reindeer would have been upside down after folding it.  Finally, I enclosed a magnet closure between layers.      

The pattern papers are also from Ink on 3Christmas Memories and Snowflake and Stripes (currently free!)  These come in black and white, but are easily made brown with a little computer magic!  The brown cardstocks are DCWV.

Sending a little holiday cheer to the following challenges:
