A start on my Christmas presents

I wanted to come up with an idea for my grand kids who are going to Disney next year.  So I came up with a mini album for them to put their pictures into.  I got idea from this tutorial:

Here is the front cover:
and the inside as it opens up to the final pull out flap in the center:

I have different Disney papers to use for each of the kids so they will be individualized.

I was challenged to make a project out of something that was round.  Well, after much thought I found this empty paper clip container:
and I made this cute little trinket box:

    Check out the new Challenges

    There are new challenges over at Colorful Creations for this month.  Come on over and play along or just get some inspiration.  I have a challenge there too and this is what I came up with:  For you to scrap a page without pictures but of a poem for a Mother or Grandmother.  It can either be a poem that you find online, one of your favorite poems or a poem written to you personally.

    This is my example:

    This was a poem written to me by my son.  I also included the inside of the card on my layout.

    This is the card I made for the "Color Combo with a Twist" challenge:
