If you haven't read Sarah's Journal you might want to start there. This one was second!

I tried to correct some of the errors I made with Sarah's when I did his. Wasn't always successful so any thoughts would be appreciated!!

I made this for him for Christmas and filled it with everything that he loves. Except for the illustrator's board I bought everything is salvaged items; paper brown bags; salvaged paper; magazine cut outs; printed off internet onto salvaged paper; ink stamps; paper found at thrift stores; given paper; etc.

Here is the cover. Note I glued the printed side this time!  Cheesy

The back which I hate. Tried to incorporate maps and globes which he loves, but I still don't like!

Some inside pages: I love the snake skeleton! I took the pics after he'd had it a few days so he'd started drawing in it already! Smiley

(Thanks Jerald for holding the pages for Mommy!)

Here is the back cover. Instead of trying to get the scrapbook paper onto the first/last page and getting it wrinkled like Sarah's I decided to cut it into strips and hopefully reinforce the pages without messing up the pages! Still got the weird bubble thing down the seam.

Any ideas where I could have done something differant/better I would appreciate it!

What a lovely idea this is! I'm sure they loved how you included all their favorite things.  I have the same problems with gluing I think, like when you glue a whole page then try to fold it and it the seam just isn't right, so I don't have an answer for you.  It is adorable anyway!
