SiL 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop - Mini Album

The last challenge for Scrap-it-Lah's 2nd anniversary blog hop is to create a mini-album using packaging! I went through my stash and pulled out this pile of packaging, some were bits I had saved, others still had the product in them :-)
.
In 2009 I made a little mini album with photos of the kids cousins. It's very out of date now, so I decided to do another one using pics from our holiday back to NZ in March/April. My finished album looks like this.
I painted the 3 pieces of Jenni Bowlin packaging with celery paint.

Decided I wouldn't use any patterned paper, just stickers, stamps, buttons, ribbons, rub-ons and tissue tape.
A few of the pages I actually glued together because I couldn't cover all the manufacturing info and I didn't want it showing. The page on the right was packaging from Cosmo Cricket and it had their name on the little red bracket which I cut around. I just covered it with a sticker. :-)

Sorry don't know why this is on it's side! You will just have to turn your head.









And of course my little stamp on the back :-)
Fun challenge ... wondered why I had kept all that packaging! Ha :-) Finished this album off this morning, so can't wait till the kids see it when they get home from school.
.
Thanks Scrap-it-Lah for the challenge and thanks everyone for visiting :-)

The album looks so fun to make! I keep all my packaging too...but can you believe that I can't figure out what to do with them, and yet when I do, I can't bear to cut them up? LOL
