Hi everyone :-)
Have made a Christmas house with a 6x4 mini album inside and used the beautiful A Christmas Carol collection from Graphic 45.This was so fun to make and hope you like it :-)
The mini album has 24 pages and back cover and can also be used as a Christmas daily journal.

The mini album is placed inside the house.
Led lights are from Prima.

Here the lights are turned of.

 Would be so fun to make a several houses and turn it into a village :-)
Music notes dies from Memory box and I used  brick panel die from Frantic Stampers for the pipe.
