Getting in the Christmas Spirit

So I've had Christmas on the brain for months now.

A co-worker and I created our floor's charity tree for the Wadsworth Anthenuem Festoival of Trees. Our theme was SEA-sons Greetings and we started working on it in October. Our tree sold the first day of the festival and won second place for the People's Choice award.

Here are some of my favorite details from the tree:

This tree inspired me to translate the aquarium feel to a mini album.

I made this mini for my parent's Christmas gift:

I started with a gatefold acrylic album by Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs.

I used alcohol ink along the outside of the pages. Then I got busy with papers and stickers from Reminisce's Under the Sea line. Some pages have double sided paper, some are clear. The fun part was to add embellishments in front of and behind the acrylic pages. This added a lot of dimension.

I'm so pleased with how it turned out. The pictures don't do the album justice though. I think my folks will love it. Now I have to scrap my pictures of the Sea Christmas tree!
