You can buy these at the dollar store. It is a hard book with hard pages and it had the perfect amount of pages for what I needed. Next, I covered all the pages with scrap book paper. I actually put gesso on them first but I'm not sure if I needed to because I glued all the paper in and didn't end up doing any painted backgrounds. I covered the papers with photos of my sisters, my one brother and me. Then I decorated them with stamps, stickers and punched out paper. I used a doily as a stencil on a couple of them. I also covered each page with a layer of matte gel medium. Then I put a little note on the back page.
I had my hand in my mouth a lot. I later replaced the hand with cake!
My youngest sister obviously came after the invention of color film.
Happy Mother's Day!
