Another Book To Share

And this time it's an altered book I am creating for Christmas as a round robin project with Pam and Sarah.  When they visited in October we decided now would be a good time to work on this when all our Christmas stuff was still out and about.
I chose for my book the theme of "Words" which is essentially words that reflect something about Christmas.
It took me a bit of time to get this book going (Sarah and Pam both thought I'd have my part done way ahead of schedule), but I did struggle a bit.

Now that I've got my cover, sign-in page, and one other page done, I think I'm on a roll.

This is my "Noel" page.  
I had a few false starts because I chose books with very fragile pages.  I then came upon this Christmas book that for some reason already had two pages attached  together throughout the whole book.
