A Few More Pages in My Christmas Traditions Altered Book

Linking up this week with
We are having a family reunion next week with our annual "Girl's Night" and "Boys Night" The girls are making these altered books. I wanted to get a head start so I can help everyone there get a good start. The next few posts tell about the pages I have done so far.
I get excited every night to work for a few minutes on my Christmas Altered Book!
Here are a few more pages that are done.
This is page 2 of the Santa page. On the left side are all the little traditions and legends about Santa, things like stockings, north pole, reindeer, etc. On the right the envelope holds the Santa history and tradition information.
This is the Christmas Tree Tradition page.
This is the music and caroling page, when you lift the card the information about Christmas music is there.

This is the beginning point of the next page I am working on. On the left side will be traditions of various ancestors. On the right side will be a wonderful talk given by Ezra Taft Benson called, "Keeping Christ in Christmas."

That is all for now! I will update as I make more progress through this magical book.
Thanks for stopping by!
