The last week....

The last week of Scrappin Patch's 6 Week competition. 
We had to make a Paperbag or Envelope album. I'd never made an album out of envelopes so I was keen to give it a go. Thanks to the ladies at CR for helpful links to various instructions on the web. I had a lot of fun making this but I admit it was hard to know when to stop adding the envelopes! My stash of scraps and older embellishments got a good work out though.

Include 4 buttons - 2 tiny buttons anchor the metal bookplate. 

Include cardstock - the 'envelope' for this page was made with Jenni Bowlin embossed cardstock and glimmermist - the background from a discarded ufo! 

Include a diecut :D 

Include tags - one of two

The circle mat used on the left side envelope flap is a chocolate wrapper! 

Two more buttons and - finally a special place for the movie tickets my 11yr old brings home for me. 

The last 'pages' and #2 of two labels to be included. The beautiful card used to hold the tag came from a swap at last years Rotorua Scrapbook Dreams Retreat 

I'll post our layout for this week in a bit...
got to scram back soonish.
