Out of the Box - baby suitcase

The challenge last week on scrapfactor was a bit out of the box - you had to capture the essence of scrapping by preserving precious memories and telling a story, but it didn't have to be a LO.  I have a suitcase with baby treasures for both my boys, all their tags, the newspaper from the day they were born, balloons, cds..and I decided to preserve them in prettier and more documented way.  I made the suitcase from pizza boxes and I coated it with book paper and watered PVA, then painted the outside brown and spritzed it a bit. I decorated the inside and made a pocket to hold some photo tags of '1sts', and used Woodhaven papers, some sassafrass and prima bling - and I used the folded flowers too.

For the tags I used lots of printable vellum and some Memory Stor papers - and these all include 1st - 1st swim, 1st pictures, 1st Christmas and 1st steps and then a card detailing lots of information noted when he was born.

I decorated the outside and added the hospital tag from his cot.

I wrapped up each item in string and made tags detailing what they the items in the box include, 1st shoes, 1st hair cut, baby tags, outfit home from the hospital, newspaper for the day they were born and cd that was number 1, the balloons my Mum loves to get and baby scans .

This week is a 3 LO I have 3 peaks.  Do go over to the gallery and have a look at what has been created.
