A visit from Flat Stanley

I hosted a Flat Stanley for a 2nd grader in Texas. We took him around sightseeing and took pictures of him where we went. Then I compiled a scrapbook of Flat Stanley's trip with us. I used a 3 ring binder since I didn't have an 8 1/2 x 11 postbound album. At least Stanley can be kept in the binder's inside pocket. Someone else probably could've whipped it out in a day but it took me several. Also did research for many of the pages, so I've learned a lot. LOL Not sure whether or not I should've put so much work into this for a second grader (I can only hope he treasures it LOL) but I couldn't NOT do it with my best effort. LOL I'm bummed I didn't have even more to share. A few weeks or so just isn't enough time. Click images to view larger.

Oh my word, Tam. You did a wonderful job on this. I'm sure the child and his mother will love you forever for all the work you put into this.

Wow, just WOW. That's SO cool to put all that effort in for a child you don't know. Your pages are beautiful! I hope he appreciates it.

I'm just wowed over this too Tam! I know the young lad and his family will just treasure this peek into the beautiful State you live.
I'm wondering how I can make my own "Flat Howard and Chris" book of the places you visited. I intend to research and map out some of these spots for a road trip for us when we visit NH next year.
Beautiful pages!!

That is really cute. If the 2nd grader doesn't appreciate it (which im sure he will) his mom will definitely cherish it.
