BINGO Christmas mini 46

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 26, 2010 @ 11:52 PM | , ,

Hi there! I'm here today to share a mini memory album using mainly Melissa Frances products. I was hoping to teach a how-to work shop creating this project but simply ran out of time. I have something else up my sleeve for one of my favorite upcoming Holidays - so perhaps then it will all work out ;) This BINGO book was featured on the Melissa Frances blog yesterday (HERE) but I wanted to share a few of the personal details:

On the cover, is a photo of my step children, Meredith and Connor in front of the Christmas tree: (Please keep in mind when looking at this book that I used a mixture of pics from several years ago. Jerry is now 22, Angie 20, Connor 15, Meredith 13, Louis, my Father-in-law is now resting in peace and Barbara, my Mother-in-law, Scott and myself remain FOREVER young ;)

On the left hand side are my children: Angie on the top in front of the tree and Jerry below peeking at a gift. On the right hand side is Connor checking the chimney to be sure Santa did not get stuck! Oh, the innocence of days gone by ;)
Up next, on the left hand side is Connor opening a gift while wearing his Boston Red Sox Santa hat. On the right hand side are Connor and Meredith helping me decorate cookies and sample a few for quality control ;)
Next up, on the left hand side are both my Father and Mother-in-law and on the right hand side is Scott sporting his Santa hat ;)
Last but not least, on the left hand side we have Meredith reading Scott a lil' book that she made extra special for him and on the left hand side is Connor sharing some love with Scott ;)
I had a lot of fun making this lil' book combining so many of my favorite products and reminiscing as I placed each photo in it's place. Thanks so much for looking and I hope you take a peek at the Melissa Frances blog to have a look at all the other amazing Holiday projects! Have a great weekend :)
