Before I ever had kids I knew I wanted to pass along my love of reading to them. I worked at a bookstore in college and used my discount to stock up on children's books!
My boys and I go to the library often and I was pretty excited when they asked to have their own library cards. Simon didn't want his picture taken, but Andrew was a good sport. Right now he's reading every Calvin and Hobbs book he can get his hands on. It's hilarious to see him crack up at the jokes.
To create my background for this page I just added an overlay from the Kaleidoscope kit over my patterned paper and changed the opacity of both until I was happy with the results.
