"Wild" Wordbook (my first one)

My daughter's 3rd grade class recently went on a field trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Due to the small size of her class we only had one other child with us and I was able to photograph the girls throughout the park.  Well wouldn't you know my NEW GYPSY (yayyy) came the night before the field trip and an invitation to the other girls birthday party came right after we returned.  The story gets even better here...when I got home from my day of chaperoning  I found that my gadget guru husband had loaded my cartridges, registered my Gypsy, dressed her in her Cherry Blossom "duds" and she was ready to party. Well I guessed my way through learning the ol' girl and this is our first project.  This is also my very first word book.  I plan on tweaking the paper colors a bit and making a second one for my daughter.  This little beauty will be wrapped and ready for the birthday girl tomorrow.

  1. Wow, very nice. My goal this summer is to make my first word book too. I think the new update will make that a lot easier for a beginner. I too am looking to add followers, so here's my blog. Right now I'm learning how to use the Cricut Cake.

    I'll be back often to check out your blog.
