As the lucky recipient of this book, I can tell you all that it is even more amazing in person! Grin It's obvious how much thought, care and hard work went into making this...I was shocked and beyond pleased to get it!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!  Can you believe that I was still nervous about sending it out for the swap...kept thinking, what if she thinks it's stupid?

I've been thinking, with a good printer, and some proper layout, it could be quite easy to print and bind books at home.  I'm going to have to give this some thought Smiley  I've told my sister to write the story she wants me to make and we'll work on it.  I may scan and embed the illustrations, then print several copies of that one. (it will be a special story that my whole family will want to read).

sulkycat and spookshowbaby77 - thanks for the swap, it's a blast so far Smiley

feelix - it's an honor being your friend too Smiley

Everyone else - Check out the fairytale swap gallery of gorgeousness over the next few weeks, you will see some lovely creations from lots of people! Smiley

Too cool, I'm "this rocks"ing this!!!!   Wink

I can't wait to try it someday!  I didn't realize originally that you bound the book yourself too, I thought it was a pre-bought blank book... I'm in even more awe now! 

If/when I do ever try this, I'll share the results with you... if I don't ask for help from you first, lol  Cheesy
