Page 4 and 5- Button on the flowers and Ice Cream Colors

Page 6 & 7- Make a Jack-O-Lantern, and Dog House (my kids love this page!!)

    That is such an awesome idea.. Very intelligent. I would love to make a few for my little ones.. I am not good with crafts however.. I hate to ask this but do you have a pattern? Would you be willing to share it? Or do you sell these? Please email me back I am very interested. And if it works I am so willing to try it. I have 6 little ones who need something to keep them busy.. And this might just do the trick.

  69. Can you please send me the pattern to this adorable book?

  70. […] page next.  Another one of my favorites!!  Once again it’s easy to tell that I used this blog for my inspiration, haha.  I really didn’t have any creativity when making this first […]

  71. I really love your piggy bank page! I made something similar based off of your idea and linked back to you on my blog! You can see it here Thanks for sharing 🙂
