Technique- sharing art with your children.

I'm so hoping my mother in law doesn't see this for a while because this is something i made as a gift to her. i wanted to find a way of incorporating the children into this book, because Children's art is timeless, and they SO love joining me in the scrappy endeavor and i so often brush them off, it so messy.. my personal weakness. I actually made this for a design team project but it didn't work out the way i'd planned, so i'm sharing here with you all instead. I wanted to come up with a new concept for a minibook. Minibooks tend to be the same old same old. I wanted to think of something unique. Cuz i'm just like that so anyway, here it is! I used the new cosmo cricket blackboard, both the Abby book, and the Fleurist shapes... which by the way, the package of those is HUGE you get a TON of them. very good deal. The coolest feature of the blackboard is how you can write on it and it just pops.... i wanted to emphasize that with this book.
