A little Christmas anyone?

Each year at Christmastime I keep all of the Christmas cards and letters that we get from our family and close friends. I have been wanting to scrapbook them somehow and keep them as a kind of journal of all that happened for our loved ones that year.
So the other day while the kids were watching a movie I finally decided to attack the huge pile of cards, letters and pictures and do something with them!
This is what I have come up with:

It is a 12x12 pocket page. The front piece is 10x12 and then I glued the sides and bottom down to a 12x12 cardstock. The letters and cards go in the pocket, and all of the pictures make collages on the front and back. I filled in any black space with some simple embellishments. Since I make our Christmas cards each year - yes, all 65+ of them! - I glue that on the front page as well, along with our family picture for that year.
I now have done every year except for 2009, so I've almost got them done!
I think they are quite fun,
What do you think?

That is such a great idea!! I just might have to copy. I've been trying to think of something like that, so thanks for the idea.
