Project #2 - Christmas Traditions Book

I'm a strong believer that one should have many projects on the go at once to eliviate boredom from doing the same craft over and over and over. As such, I am now going to show you another project I have on the go - A Christmas Traditions book.

I had hoped to get this finished for Christmas 2009, however I had a tumour the size of a grapefruit removed from my tummy in the November and spent the next 4 months recovering, so unfortunately not much work got done in that time. You can see a picture of where I got to prior to the tumour above.

The book itself is made out of MDF and I have covered it using an array of papers from Kaiser (they have a great factory outlet in Geelong, Victoria if you're nearby). There are four sections within the book which I will be using for the following:

1) A listing of ornaments given each year to our children
2) Space for a Christmas CD or two
3) A selection of Christmas recipes
4) A list/description of Christmas traditions carried out by our family

Below you can see a picture of each of the inside covers:

So now I am up to creating each of the individual pages for the sections listed above. For this I have chosen a white linen bond paper. I am concerned that the 90gsm may not be heavy enough to work the way I want, but I'm giving it a go none the less. I'll keep you posted with my progress.
