I was given a photo album at my recent baby shower. I don't like it much, and wanted to give it a do-over, and kind of scrapbook it in a way. The inside pages are those card-board type with sticky stuff and a clear film over them. You know, you pull up the film, stick your pictures to the pages, and then place the film back over them.

So here's my question(s): Can I use those pages to sort of make a cheapy scrapbook with? Will the stickiness hold up over time or should I glue the pictures and elements to the page? What about the clear film cover? If someone tries to pull it up years later, will it damage the pictures or whatever is beneath it? It may end up being a cheapy scrapbook, but I want it to last.

Thanks in advance.

Did you decide what to do with this? Wonder if you just completely did away with the plastic cover and thenjust adhered your scrapbook page to the sticky pages if that would work out well?

I decided not to chance it. Instead I scrapped it for parts--took it completely apart to use the parts in other projects, then went out and bought a regular scrapbook instead.
