After seeing this Calvin & Hobbes book (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356922.0;all), I wanted to make one for my sister for Christmas.  But, I couldn't bear cutting up any of my Calvin & Hobbes books.  I like digital scrapbooking, so I figured I'd do it that way.  There are remarkably few Calvin & Hobbes pictures online (good quality pictures, anyway), so I ended up taking pictures of the comic strips that I wanted.  Tongue

I did all the work in Photoshop and ordered a photobook with these images.  I haven't got the book yet, I hope it all comes out ok!

She likes to cook, so they are real recipes. 


Anyway, here they are:

It took a lot of time to complete, but I hope she likes it!  Smiley

 Very well done!

 I'm just wondering if the printer would have a problem with trademarked  images.
