This is really cool.  My grandmother used to write stories and put the illustrations in the margins.  It's a wonderfully personal touch.  Great job.

This is amazingly beautiful and thoughtful! You totally win the Swap-Partner-of-the-Year Award Smiley Your lovely pictures have really inspired me, this could be a great spring project... My sister is going to have a baby in June, and a story book would make a great gift for her namegiving! Thanks so much for the inspiration, keep up the great work Smiley

Wow. Just... wow.

I think I would love to do something similar for my daughter, as a keepsake. I never would have thought of it though!

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

Thanks for the "rockage!"  Oooh...Maybe it'll be a featured project in the next batch  Grin (I hope I hope!)

I definitely want to see the results if/when you or anyone else gives it a go.  This really was a fun project.  In the course of it, I discovered that a cd tower makes a pretty good drying rack for lots of pages. Wink

Thanks again to everyone who's commented.  This is really rocking my shameless and desperate need for external validation   Wink

It's been said many times before, but this is absolutely darling. Smiley Your swap partner is so lucky! I skimmed through the tutorial you linked to, and the bookmaking actually seems pretty easy. I'm really tempted to try my hand at this now! As if I need to add more crafty things to do in my non-existent free time.
