his colours...

My youngest at 2 and a half is having trouble remembering his colours. I decided to make him a mini album using some COREDINATIONS cardstock, an old chipboard book I had lying around , embossing folders, and some Scrapware chipboard.
I kept it simple so as not to distract from the  concept of colour....of course my oldest wanted to read it as well!
 Do you spy that yummy Lil red rocket traffic button on the cover!




Till next time...

You clever lady. This is fabulous. What a great idea and I'm sure the boys loved it, and the big girls like me too.
And that pic of them both reading is a treasure. You just might need to put it on a page....hehe.
