Christmas - OLL#86

Good Monday! And how are you all?
It's been a while since the last time I properly blogged. But my holidays are over now and here I am... And since it is Monday let me tell you about another great challenge at Ooh La la...
OLL Challenge #86 is about Christmas!
I have to admit that when they told me the theme for this challenge I was a bit scared!! It takes me ages to come up with ideas for Christmas cards every November/December, so imagine having to do it now in summer!!! But hey, then I remembered this little project I had been meaning to try - a star album. It can be a little photo album, a Xmas decoration, whatever you wanted it to be... Cool or what?!
I honestly cannot remember which site I got the instructions from, but if you like it, just google "Star Album" and I am sure you will find plenty of tutorials. It might look difficult but it is not, just a wee fiddly, that's all!!! And perfect for Christmas! :-)

All images in my album are from the Joyeux Noel CD. Organza ribbon from my own stash. Pistachio, brown and beige cardstock from Coredinations, all embossed with different Cuttlebug folders and distressed to play with different tones and textures.
Let's see what other challenges are out there:
Jingle Belles - Shape up for the Holidays
ABC Christmas challenge - P is for Xmas present
Paperplay - Xmas in August
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Xmas in July/August
Cute Card Thursday - No designer paper
Craft Us crazy - Anything goes
Ai Factory - Anything goes
Crafts and me - Anything goes
Papertake weekly - Anything goes

Have a great week!
