WHEW - Lots of work here!!!!

Wow, did these things take a while!!  I think it was because I had so many to make!!  OK, let's just get started.

I did a bit of tweaking since I posted my first one a week or so ago by deciding to paper the backs of the pages as well.  I did NOT have the time or patience to layer both sides, so this will have to do!  I made two different designs for the boys and girls, with the boys' book on top in the picture, girls' on the bottom.  I made three of the boys and two girls books, so that's why it took so long.  All cuts are from Life is a Beach except the shell on the girls books, which is from Disney Dreams Come True.  See the pearls inside it???  I couldn't resist, lol.  I used Divine Swirls on the shells and crabs, and Swiss Dots on the iguanas and flowers.  Some inking for shading, coloring on the sandcastle and pineapple drink, and stickles and gems on the treasure chests completed it all!!  I intentionally kept it plain and clutter free to give them the opportunity to decide how they want to use them, for pictures or journaling.  Once they decide, I will make some mats and frames that fit their choice.

I'm leaving for vacation in a couple of hours, so the kids will get them later when everyone gets there.  I hope they like them!  Sorry this is so long, and I will be live again after I get back from vacation on the 25th!  Have a great week everyone!!!
