4th of July Weekend

We had a nice 4th of July. Beth had to work, so we had a cookout after she got home. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and macaroni & cheese. Later in the evening, we shot off fireworks. We put on a good show!

Today (Sunday), I was FINALLY able to finish Ethan's alphabet book. The album is an 8 x 8 Pioneer album. I put Colorbok chipboard letters, covered in Colorbok chipboard letter stickers, on the cover. The cardstock used for the base of the pages is by The Paper Company. I used the Zooballoo Cricut cartridge to cut all the animals and letters. The letters on the title page and end page were cut from adhesive-backed cardstock I bought from QVC, and all the other letters and animals were cut from Bazzill cardstock. The animals are attached on the outside of the page protectors with velcro so Ethan can take them off and put them back on. I used my YourStory machine to laminate the animals.


  1. Hey Brenda, Your ABC album is just so cute. I love your idea of using the velcro with the animals. Fabulous job! Ethan is going to love it! I can just picture Ethan sitting on his Grandma's lap going through his new ABC album. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Thanks! Tonight I am going to read it to him. The best thing is that if he loses one of the animals, I can just cut and laminate another one.

  3. What an adorable book, I'm sure Ethan is entertained by that!!!

    I'll be seeing you!
