Order of the Opus Gluei Challenge #27 - Copy Cat

I love Paperback swap. I put books up for swap and request books I want. All for the price of postage. I posted a book from my youngest daughter. I got a request for it and sent it off. A few days later I got a reply that I had made several young girls very happy. (Insert big smiley face here.) After several emails, I had decided to make and send scrapbooking supplies to these young girls. They are in a home for children who have been removed from their homes for different reasons. Then, as I am apt to do, I kept thinking that a scrapbook would be a better, more finite project for these girls. So I am making and sending 14 kits to these girls. They are split into 2 groups. Younger and older. Yesterday I made the kits for the younger girls.

The front page in the album will have punched out letters. This is PSE7 text inserted to show what it will look like.

I know these look a bit blank, but they look pretty good when you have pics in place.

The white page on the left (below) will have some word punched out and glued on.
I just need to figure out which word would be GREAT for younger girls.
The ribbon on the these pages is real ribbon.
I think I will probably run it through my Xyron to make it easier for the girls.
And older girls.
Any ideas are very welcome.

I used the punches and dies that I have. And all the paper and cardstock is from my stash.
Basically, I copied the format of an album I already have.

Again, I have used patterned paper for ribbon strips. I think it will be easier for the girls to glue down.

I really had fun making these kits. Again, the ribbon on the last page is patterned paper.

I have pics of some of the original album pages next to my altered versions on

Thanks for looking.
