Boardbooks for Kelly and Melissa~Part One

Hey guys! Happy Thursday to ya! I wanted to share some boardbooks with you. Mom and I currently have 7 boardbook orders in for some fellow teachers that she works with. We have been working soooo hard and have some finished up. So I thought I would go ahead and share with you what I have finished up so far. I have finished 4 of the boardbooks. Mom is working on 2 as we speak and I will share those with ya as soon as she gets them finished. I am going to start on the 7th book tonite and hope to have it for ya by tomorrow. So if you can, be sure to check back in a day or so to see the rest of the books.

To make things easier on me, I put all of these in a slideshow. You will have to excuse these pix too. I got the best I could, but these pictures do not do the books near the justice they deserve! They are so much more colorful than what is coming through in the pictures. It has been raining and just plain blah here for weeks and I cannot get outside in the sun to snap pix. So I tried my best to take pix in the sunroom today. So I hope you can tell some about these.

I put so much time into these and I hope you will enjoy them. I designed these in SCAL and Mom helped me cut them out. Mom also designed several of the paper dolls that are in the books and she did a fabulous job! They are so cute! Thanks Mom!

A little background for ya, these books are for 7 little girls who are all around the same age and all best friends. I believe they are going to be having one big party soon and the girls will receive these books as gifts. We got a bit of background from each girl including there name and what they wanted their boardbook to look like. We followed their requests very closely and I am extremely pleased with the way these books are turning out!!! They are just so darlin' and I wish yall could see them in person. If I can get a pic out in the sunlight of the books before Mom sends them, I will do so.

The books I have done are as follows:
1. Lauren (Theme Requested: zebra print/hot pink, dance, gymnastics, ballet, voice, pageant, friends)
2. Kyra (Theme Requested: zebra print/hot pink, dance, voice, gymnastics, ballet, friends)
3. BFF for Alayna (Theme Requested: purple, polka dots, peace sign, groovy, dance, gymnastics, flowers)
4. Ava (Theme Requested: Polka Dots, Pink, Dance, Gymnastics, Girl Scouts)

So here we go...here are the books:
Note: I got this as big as I could, but if you would like to see it bigger, you can follow this link. I would recommend that you do follow the link because not only can you see the pix bigger, but it will start at the beginning for ya. :)

I hope you have enjoyed these! I had so much fun making them! I will have my Moms books up to show you asap!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
