CC3C - Altered Burlap Panel

Happy Saturday crafty folks! It's time for the sixth challenge in the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge!!! The Curiosity Crew and I are still talking about all the entries from the challenges that totally blow us away! It's always so hard to pick our favorites each time, and we just thank you for joining in on all the fun!  I really wish each of you could win! AND...thank you thank you thank you for all of the comments. You are make me feel so good!
Challenge number six is all about Altering Burlap Panels! Burlap has been the rage for about the last year now, and I see it everywhere and on everything! I LOVE it!  I hope you have a panel and can play along on this challenge so you can win some amazing fabulous prizes donated by the ever generous Tim and Mario, and this sixth challenge's sponsor, The Funkie Junkie Boutique!!! Thank you sponsors for your generosity! You will have two weeks to complete this challenge and link it up to the CC3Challenge site, and you can carefully read all the rules here. Please take the time to visit every member of the Curiosity Crew (See below.) for not only some gorgeous burlap inspiration, but for a chance to win some extra goodies!
I've already done several altered burlap canvases using the front parts, so I wanted to do something different with the burlap canvas for this challenge.  I decided to use two, hinged them together to create an album, and give it a Christmas theme. It's Christmas in July!!! The pages inside are tags, the 12 Days of Christmas tags.  And, I hope it's alright to say, but I ABSOLUTELY adore this project, and can't wait to fill it with photos during the holidays.  It's loaded with all my favs... Ranger products, Tim goodness, Sizzix dies, Stamper's Anonymous Images, and lots of Wendy goodies too!
 
 
 
The back is probably one of my favorite parts. I'm glad I didn't cover it up.
 
 
Here are just a few pics of the inside.
 
Sorry there are no step outs for this project, but I will be teaching it soon. Thanks for looking, and I hope you join in on the Compendium of Curiosities III FUN!!!

Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
