Holiday Happy. Inspirational bloghop at Paper Issues. Giveaway from Reminisce.

 Hi and welcome to the Happy Holiday bloghop.

At Paper Issues we are happy to be sponsored by Reminisce starting today Nov 18th and going on for the next two weeks.We would like you to link up your projects that go with our theme to our original PI post HERE. Every day DT members will pick three projects to feature from what you link up, and hopefully send a lot of new traffic to your blogs. 

I received a beautiful kit by Reminisce including some lovely seasonal 12 X 12 papers and stickers.
This kit is also what will be offered as a prize to two lucky winners.

It is my first Christmas project of the year,...I am normally a slow starter... But with these very classic and elegant looking papers I could not wait to get started!
I printed some of the photos I took last Christmas and decided to start a mini album.
So far I have finished the cover but I will share the rest of it as I finish more pages.
This is what it looks like:

To win one of the prizes :
I would like you to be or become a follower of my blog and post a comment on this post.

We have two of these kits to give away! :-)

The  DT members taking part in the hop are:
Bente (that's me :-D)

Here are a few more pictures of my album.

I used a pre-made mini-album  as a base and covered the pages with beautiful patterned papers. 
I added a thin layer of gesso on top of the front page and aged it with some gold paint around the edges. I even used a little tan coloured paint to make it look more 'worn'.
I then added my embellishments; lace, ribbon leaves and lovely flowers. 
I wanted to use one of the stickers for my title and at first I was going to use a really large one. 
I decided against it as it would have covered up so much of the patterned paper . I found an old chipboard frame and put a smaller sticker behind it. I loved the look!

 The smaller sticker words are also by Reminisce...Family, Traditions,...Peace...
I created a soft crackle paint effect on the chipboard frame, -after I painted it and distressed it with
 some gold paint.

I have a code that will let you take 20 percent off your whole cart when you go shopping at
