Hi All, Just sorting through our attic, trying to start the big clear out. Came across all my kids scrapbooks from nursery to present year at school. Looking through them I notice that they have used leaves, sand, pasta on some of their pictures, would I need to remove these out of their files due to customs/quarantine regulations? Seems a shame to rip out work out of their scrapbooks, but better than someone destroying them all together once they get shipped across to Australia. I've probably answered my own question but no harm in confirming things. Thanks Tracy

Hi Tracy I personally wouldn't take it out of their scrapbooks. They are not going to go through every box in your container, especially if you have paid a professional firm to do your packing. Tracy

Hi I agree with Tracy, I have also got the kids scrap books with said items in theirs!! Totally forgot about them and only realised said items were in the books when I unpacked them here. So DONT take them out, AQIS wont go through each and every thing, just make sure said items are not listed on your inventory list, 'books' is all that is needed to be listed!!! Good luck Gayle ;-)

Hi Tracy and Gayle, Thanks for your replies. I have decided to keep the kids scrapbooks in one piece, as you mentioned, it would be a shame to spoil them, by having ripped pages missing. I will put them in between photo ablums or other books and name the box just 'books'. Thanks again for your quick replies. Tracy
