Allison's ABC book

I had first seen this idea from a friend right after we moved here. I didn't really have any kids that were young enough at the time to really enjoy this great idea. Thank God for Allison! I got to make her this awesome book! I used a 6x6 album from Stampin Up. They sell pads of 6x6 papers, so you don't even have to trim them to fit in the album! How easy is that? I love this idea because I can use up all the scrapbooking stickers that I haven't used and probably will never use. I also had some die cuts that I cut out when visiting my sister in Utah. We used to have so much fun looking for the perfect die cuts and making them at the scrap stores there...:) I also used photos to coordinate with the letter. For B I used Brothers, and D Dad. She loves this book! If you are especially short on time, you could just use all photos and do a book through Snapfish. I used  older photos because most of my photos from 2005-today are digital and not printed out yet. She still recognizes everyone! If you have a toddler at home, I recommend making this awesome keepsake! Have fun!!

She approves! My next project is a DIY play kitchen made out of an old nightstand! I cannot wait to make this! Allison loves being with me in the kitchen, so this is perfect. I can make it small enough to fit in the kitchen with me!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
