Mitten Book

I found this mitten chipboard book in the dollar bin at Michaels, what a bargain! I covered it in an American Crafts paper that already had a striped border on it, so that did for the cuff. The letter stickers are also from a AC pad, and I cut out tiny images of the children from those index prints that you get when you get photos developed

Here's a couple of pages from the inside, love those photos of Kiki playing in the snow last winter- the only snow she has ever seen in her 5 years living in London! Yes, I know I put a flower among the snowflakes on this page, but with these tiny books I go for making the pages look pretty and busy rather than telling a story. This little book will be James and Annie's christmas card this year.
It also fits in nicely with the challenge over on colour create this week, red, white and green.

  19. En, so cute! You are right that was a bargin. I'm still recovering from my hellish week. My gram died and my daugher has pnemonia. I had to fill in for my boss at work which meant I had to cook without instruction and that is never good. LOL. Humor is still in tact. That is probably a good sign.
