I made personal books for all my kids, but not in order of age. I don't know why but the first book I made was for my second born, and the last book I made was for my first born.
Of course I have lot's of ideas for more books- stories just waiting to be born. And I I've been hoarding supplies for years because a large stash to draw from is essential -tell me I'm not the only one!- making more personalized scrapbooks is one of those things on my to-do list that I'm hoping to find time for.
This box, simply covered with a single scrapbook paper sheet, is the special case for the book for my boy.
I will try not to go on about how fast time has gone by, how special this kid is, or how he just turned sixteen years old without my permission.
Now if you look closely, you will notice I spelled my first born son's name wrong. And I just noticed it when I took the book out of the box to take pictures.
You know you have done the same thing.
It's a simple day in the life of my son Jonathan, with a silly twist.
I filled it with random facts about food - The boy could travel around the world, see the most amazing wonders, and the first thing he would tell you about was the food he ate.
I made this book a few years ago and I still don't feel confident with the layering techniques that makes photos stand out so well. However, I don't think my son noticed my lack of fancy tecnique one bit.
He uses weapon X - the sticky hand to defeat the nefarious, evil, gum chewing, naked alien zombie chicken invader!
The book is filled with special effects. The Alien Zombie Chicken's suit lifts up to reveal his "chicken suit."
The chicken target spins (sorta) and you can smack it with the sticky hand.
I loved making this book. I giggled through most of it. My kids inspire me to do the craziest things.
