Scrap a little sunshine

At the beginning of July, Ellen on Crafts by Carolyn told us about the need for people to make mini scrapbooks for for children with cancer in which they can stick photographs and little notes from family and friends. (more info here: http://scrapalittlesunshine.blogspot.com/)

I've been meaning to make something and in fact started a concertina book a couple of weeks ago and didn't get it finished.

I have to admit that atm I don't really feel like crafting, but thought it would be good today to try and concentrate on doing something for this project.

The idea is to make mini books that the children themselves add their photos and bits of interest, so they are not meant to be finished.

Apparently, there is more need now for books for boys, so the ones I've made are suitable for older boys:







I just hope they're suitable. The concertina one was made sticking a few cards together, so that the middle three have pockets (hence the stickers and tags sticking out).
