This month, the Design Team at Scrapbook Express is working with 7 Gypsies...how lucky are we?! I made this envelope album into a counting book for my kids. Each page has a number, in each envelope is that number of items to count...held together with the 7 gypsies metal binding ring. So the children can easily hold and count each item. Each page is also accented with the 7 gypsies Nottinghill Paper Clips--how perfect!!
The paper used for this project is the Nottinghill Collection and the Kaiser Jade's Garden Collection. I also used Basic Grey Number Pile, and a bunch of other yummies from the store.
Anyway, I am not an author, but here is the text:
Out for a walk and what do we see... one little elephant wants to walk with me!
One little elephant knows just what to do...grabs his monkey friends, 1 and two.
Two little monkeys, silly as can be...finds a few giraffes...1, 2, 3!
Three tall giraffes just want to join the fun...see 4 lions, so they run, run, run!
Four lion friends decide to play along, hear 5 frogs croak a little song.
5 croaking frogs look up in the air...see 6 buttleflies fluttering way up there.
Six pretty butterflies stop to take a rest, find 7 flowers, but like the red the best!
Seven happy flowers just growing in the sun, see 8 kittens having fun, fun, fun!
Eight playful kittens having a great time...came one more and then there were...9!
Nine hungry kittens looking for a treat find 10 yummies to eat, eat, eat!
