Kid Friendly ABC Albums

I met this wonderful lady at a craft fair about two years ago, Sharon.

She used to live an hour away on the north shore, and now she lives down towards Cape Cod which is a good 1 to 1 1/2 hour drive from me. I had made a really cute ABC's book for my daughter that she saw with the mini on board books (that have since retired).

Sharon called to make a date, and we met up (after waiting for some time) last Friday night. We had SO much fun.

I didnt' have all the same supplies (cause many of them retired), so we pulled out retired papers, chose different ones for the different children (based on personality) and went to town! We had so much fun. Her children will be able to write right on the page protectors to practice their letters. A simple swipe with a damp cloth and they can do it again! Sharon got extra page protectors to insert photos randomly, and she plans on making them into tiny little scrapbooks.

So ~ this is the result of what we did last Friday night! So fun to just sit and craft with a buddy over pizza! I know that many of the papers and colors you're seeing here are not available for purchase any more. What supplies do you have that could make an awesome creation like this? Use them up!!

Here's the design for her little boy.
And this one is for her girl. Aren't they cool?
If you're local to me, let's make a date! If you want, we can invite a few friends and make it a private class! (It's Sale-a-bration after all and you get more freebees than ever from orders during this time of year!)

Happy Tuesday!

What darling books and a great idea, Selene! With a 10 mo. old grandson, perhaps I should start thinking about something like this.

That is the cutest idea EVER!!! I am definitely going to have to come up with something like that for my girls! I LOVE your Mojo Cards for both this week and last too!
