This is a chipboard book I made with a number of different papers, rubons, stamps and ribbon.I should have written the recipe down as I went but I didn't so now I'm sorry but what can ya do right? I had so much fun decorating this book ! I bought the book with the rings included (The book was already cut and ready to go). All I did was put the papers on that I wanted, sanded the edges and it was ready ! The book might look big because of the pictures but the pictures are actually resized to be about 2 x 3. The book is about 3" x 8".



This 1st page says Toronto Zoo Aug 2007. Matthew & Jonah are alike when it comes to water fun ! We had to bribe them with ice cream to get them to leave.


This 2nd page says Jonah is such a big boy now. He loves to get himself dressed (you can see in the picture that his pants are on backwards).


This page says You better run Mommy if you know what's good for you ! (The picture of these pages didn't turn out so well. The pic on the left is of my son pointing a water gun right at me).


Messy face ... we love you. (Need I say more?LOL)



This last page says Matthew, what a goof-ball you can be sometimes. here I am trying to take a great picture of my beautiful innocent children and you pretend you're being goosed ! You really make life a lot of fun !
We had such a great day ! We all go to see the animals we love. You guys even got to run through the sprinklers in the water park.
