My brother and I did this as kids and laughed until we cried...so we created an app for it! It’s called Sleevefacer and you can find it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sleevefacer/id471522760?mt=8

Choose some album art, line it up and snap a photo...it’s easy, fun and very addicting. Check out some examples in the gallery at www.sleevefacer.com
