Serendipity Blog Hop!!

Time for another look at the wonderful paperkit being featured at Serendipity! This kit will be available through the end of this month - I'd jump quick if I were you and snatch one up before they are gone!Tuesday was our 19th wedding anniversary! While it doesn't seem like yesterday that we got married it certainly doesn't feel like nearly two decades have passed since we said, "I do." I've been a big admirer of Becky Rusher's mini albums (winter mini album, teapot album, special delivery) for some time and thought that this would be a perfect project for this paper.
Have you guessed what the pages are made from yet? Toilet paper rolls! Love it - the shipping tag fits right in there just perfectly once you've trimmed off about 1/2" - 3/4" from the end. I covered the paper seam with 1/4" Scor-Tape and the silver glass glitter (I'm addicted to that stuff!)
I replaced the twine on the tags with ivory velvet rickrack and A Muse ribbon from the kit. Added a few A Muse stamps and bound the whole thing together with my BIA.

Look at the beautiful flowers Corey brought home for me! Even though our anniversary was 3 days ago the celebrations start tonight - the kids are at mom/dad's for the weekend and we have plans for some alone time!
Be sure and check out Kim and Roni's blogs for more inspiration!!

Adorable album! The kit works great with your photos.

I'd love to see more info on how you used the toilet paper rolls. I'm not able to visualize that one.

Everyone has been amazed when they stop by the store and see this album, and I tell them it's made of toilet paper rolls! I love it! Great job Michelle!
