alterered jeans



hello everyone, suburbngypsy here. i hope you've had an awesome holiday season!

today's project started out with a little pair of jeans i couldn't get rid of. they were my daughter's, and they were just too cute to part with. but i didn't know what i wanted to actually do with them. and then i thought "ALBUM COVER" and so gypsies, here we go!

i used a combination of paper collections for this albumn - "uncommon", "gathering", "journey", "blissful", and "splendid" as well as some pieces from our "freebird" papers. i also used some cardboard from a xmas box for the inside covers, and miscellaneous buttons, flowers, and sparkly bits. i left the pockets intact and the make great extra little tag and keepsake pockets.

  11. This is awesome and I have a little granddaughter that I'm sure has the perfect little pair of jeans that I can "steal". I think I'll make her an album of the year she wore the jeans and then give it to her when she is older! Thank you Authentique DT for being so stinkin' creative and for letting us "scraplift" your ideas!
