Friends with Flair and a Peachy project


Hello and TGIF everyone!

Friday means Unity's weekly Friends with Flair blog hop. I love to see what everyone is up to. My contribution is a double whammy. I created this little project for a DT assignment over at Let's Get Peachy. July is Anti-Boredom Month so I thought a little interactive book for a youngster would be a fun diversion this summer. I've outlined the steps I took to create this fun book over at LGP so stop in there if this is something you'd like to try. The pages inside are decorated with various animals and the mixing and matching comes from being able to flip portions of each page to come up with a silly saying. I intentionally left the top quarter blank because I thought it would be fun for the child to add a friend or family member's name for more silliness.

My children are too old for this kind of fun so I'll be choosing a random commenter to win this book. If you're interested, please let me know in the comment who you'd like to give this to. I'll post a winner on my blog on Monday morning.

So, to show you one of the pages inside.... I used my favorite Unity owl from the Aug. '10 KOTM (all you need...) to grace the page.








On other pages, I used Sparky the kitty from Hugs and Kitties and the rooster, fish and cow from Ippity's Farm Fresh, Fishy Philosophy and Simply Home sets, respectively. (Go to the Ippity blog and use their locator to find an Ippity Chick, if you'd like one of these sets.)

Don't forget to check out all the fun stamps at Unity's main site and the blog hop at the Unity blog. You're sure to walk away inspired!

Oh, I love this! If I won it, I would read it to my grandson, but I would keep it at my house so it could be a special book for him when he comes to visit! You did a fabulous job on this book!

How cute!!! love the owl :)
I would love to give it to my 4 year old son Colton, as I think he would love it, and he tends to get so many 'hand-me-downs' from his older brother, I think he would love to get something special just for him!
