Sunday Afternoon Project - Trash to Treasure

I couldn't bear to toss out this packaging that my KI papers came in. I just love the little circle tab on it.

I decided to recycle it and this is what I made. A little 5th Grade memory book for Matthew. It has tabs for pictures of "friends", "activites", "projects", and "awards". He helped me come up with those titles for the divider pages and he'll do some of the journaling on some old library cards I found in my stash. I just need to add a couple of jump rings and we're ready to document the coming school year!

Papers used are by Cosmo Cricket - Get Happy line
Hambly white grid transparency

Reen! What a great idea! You know what? You should enter one of the green contests at Prima. I think they are still going on! I love your album. Thanks for inspiring me!
