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