Using Wallet Sized School Photos in a Matchbook Mini-album

My blog post should be going up on the
the Scrapgal blog today. But I always like to share them here as well!

I had the most darling little Matchbook Chipboard Mini-Album in my kit from Jenn at Scrapgal this month. But I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it.
Until I was sorting through Evan's school photo packets that I have been collecting and storing in my school album kit bag.

And I decided to make a small mini-album that I could carry in my purse. The mini is only about 2 1/2 inches by 2 inches, so the wallet size photos are perfect. I used papers from the My Mind's Eye "Lil' Robots" collection to cover the album, mini alphabet stickers from My Little Shoebox, and a small frame stamp by Studio Calico.

So the wallet size photos are on one side of the page...

and his grade is on the back!
Now if someone could please tell me where his second grade photo packet is, it would be perfect!
Actually, the mini-album only came with three pages inside, but I realized that I could easily make more from sheets of chipboard and using a hole punch. And when I find his second grade photos, that is what I plan on doing :)
