Cursive Book.................

I made this cursive book for Alissa a few weeks ago. I printed off some practice sheets online. I used her favorite color blue as the main color. Which is good because I did not want it too girly- as I want the boys to be able to use it in a few years also.
All chipboard pages and covers are 4 1/4" x 11"
There is a piece of transparency paper in between all pages. Just by flipping it up- or down you can use it both pages to practice tracing your cursive letters. Wipes clean easily also!
I also included a sample of each letter- with the detailed descriptions on forming each letter.

Front cover...............
You can see the transparency good in this picture........
Using my new BFF - Bind it all to bind it all together!
Rear cover.............



All paper was taken from my "blue" paper stash! If you make one of these for your little one's- link it back to me. I would LOVE to see your cursive book!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
