Autograph Book

For about a month or so now, I've gotten to listen to, and live vicariously through, my good friend Paulette's upcoming family vacation plans. They were heading to Disney World at the end of September! So after deluging her with many tips, ideas, words of wisdom, "If I were you..." 's, etc., it dawned on me.... Kylie needed an Autograph book! You know... those things that almost every kid carries around Disney, searching for every costumed character, just to get their autograph!?!? I mentioned this to her, all the while thinking how expensive (read... overpriced) those things must be to purchase, and realizing that I could probably make a pretty cute one myself! So, that's exactly what I told her I'd do! And of course, leave it to me, to procrastinate and leave it until the last possible minute. Last minute or not, I'm pretty proud of it, and think it came out pretty darn cute... don't you?!?!

And I was told, that Kylie got many a-compliment on her Autograph book, and Paulette said that hers was WAY cuter than any of the other ones she saw there! I can't wait until we take our Disney trip (keeping fingers and toes crossed for 2009!!!) to make one for each of my kids!

That is so cute! I am so impressed, Makala!! That is a great idea too...I might have to steal it! What kind of notebook did you use for it?

Mary said...

You are so crafty!! And thoughtful!! That's why I love you!! : )

Christi- I acutally didn't really use a "notebook". I had this blank chipboard book that I broke apart so I could use a piece of chipboard for the front and back covers. And I have this really cool Bind-It-All machine that I used to "bind it all" together with the ring things! :-)

You are just so talented! I love your blog makeover, I just might have to steal some of your ideas!!!

Awww, thanks, Christi! :-) Go right ahead and "steal" my ideas, cuz most of mine are "stolen" ideas I've found from other people's blogs! ;-)
