A mini album in a tin box!


J's tin album


So I was invited to guest design for lulupu.com this month and the theme is mini albums! :) I upcycled an old tin box which was used to house an accordian-styled album [4.25 X4.5] with photos of my nephew J. 




Now you all know that littlest nephew J spends an insane amount of time with me. Most weekends. Saturday and Sunday. The first kid I know to burst into tears when his daddy comes to pick him up...yes, there have been many tearful goodbyes with him in the car seat wailing while holding my hand, "I don't want to go home. I want to stay here...."




The upside to spending this much time with his aunt is the ridiculous amount of photos and videos he has. *LOL*




Here he was dressed up in his sister's outfit... [he insisted...I was thoroughly entertained! *LOL*]




Here he was singing...




At the playground...


To create unity among the pages, I use repeated elements like the owl with the googly eyes [I added Glossy accents for dimension] and the tag and twine. I also printed all my photos in black and white for a more cohesive look.


Supplies: Nikki Sivils patterned papers and stickers, EAD designs owl stickers, Inkessentials Glossy Accents, googly eyes, twine, tag, ribbon.
