Exploding Photo Album

Much to my surprise and delight, I was chosen to receive this beautiful photo album from a fellow blogger and Etsy store owner, English Lavender Studios of Calgary, Alberta.

It measures about 4 inches square and ties with a creamy satin ribbon. Unfolded, it spreads to 22 inches wide and 11 inches high with lots of spots to display my prints. It's beautifully handcrafted and I love the subtle colors. The first photo is the back of the album, followed by a front view.

Debbie mailed my gift just before Christmas, along with a package of her divine red and cream gift tags. I have to say they are both absolutely stunning! What a lovely gift just in time for the Holidays! 

She was celebrating the one year anniversary of her blog with the prize giveaway. If you haven't discovered her blog already, you really should check it out. There's lots of great ideas and tutorials on paper crafting projects, baking, decorating, etc. If you're interested in viewing (or purchasing) more of Debbie's items, please visit her Etsy shop.

Thank you so much, Debbie! Keep on blogging! 

Happy New Year!
