Wizard of Oz Mini Book

Happy Monday everyone!  Hoping you are enjoying the cooler temperatures!  I was nearly in shock when I opened my window Saturday afternoon to find the temperature had finally dropped.  It was actually cooler outside than it was in my apartment!!  Today is a bit warmer, but  enjoyable.

Today's feature is a mini book with Wizard of Oz themed paper by Graphic 45.  It was really a kit my daughter purchased from Archivers.

My granddaughters are very involved with dance.  One of the big production numbers this year was Wizard of Oz.  Both the girls were in this production.  Kerri played a scarecrow and Kerri (the 4 yr old) played Toto.  Both were adorable, but Kerri was a star as she stole the show with her cartwheel entrance and shaking her little Toto tail.

My daughter saw the kit and thought it would be a great gift for the girls' dance teacher.  Since Katie is quite busy with the girls, dance lessons, summer school, etc, I offered to make the book and all she had to do is add the photos!

Here are the pages of the book.  It measures 6 x 6 and has lots of fold out pages and pockets.










I really enjoyed making this book.  The paper is GORGEOUS!!!  I purchased the stack of the paper and hope to make one or two more....possibly one for my granddaughters with photos from their dance.

Oh, and I hope you don't mind, here's a photo of the Stars!....Kayla and Kerri!

Enjoy your Monday!

Koala-t hugs,

Cathy
