Sheleen, aka Bubbles, over on Patchwork Apples, offered up this candy, a fabulous mini album, way back in November last year but, what with all that happened between then and the new year, I had quite forgotten all about it. So imagine my surprise when an email from Sheleen popped into my box informing me I had won.
It's a fabulous mini Christmas album, made from cardstock but in a style that mimics those made from toilet roll inners. It's chockablock with photo mats, labels, journal spots and cute little pockets in which to put all these. I can't possibly show you all the contents (this post would be too photo heavy if I did that) but here's a few photographs showing the contents.

And there's more, but too much to show you here. Suffice to say it is packed full and an absolutely beautiful album to enjoy and treasure.
I have in mind a set of photographs from a very specific Christmas when almost all of the family came to ours for dinner. The house was fit to bursting and we had a brilliant day and only a day like that could be fit for this album.
Do pop over to Sheleen's blog, Patchwork Apples, to see more of her beautiful creations - she is a very talented crafter.
Sheleen, if you are reading this, thank you so much - it's wonderful and I will treasure it always.
Right, time for lunch.
