Oliver's Summer Vacation

Hi!  This is my last traveling summer journal.  I made this for my older son.  He loves this TGF stamp of Oliver holding the dinos because he loves dinos too.  I used the sketch over at TGF's Farm Fresh Challenge Which One Wednesday for the cover of his journal.


I had specific instructions from my son to color Oliver's dinos just like his.  So I used my son's toy dinos as inspiration.

See?  My son and his dinos.

Here's the title page.  Similar to the one I made for my daughter.  I used some fun green binding instead of silver though. 


I also used this Oliver stamp to make a bookmark for my younger son.  And he wanted to copy his brother so pretty much used all the same colors to color Oliver and the dinos.

The bookmark in action.  He had been asking for a bookmark to copy his older siblings.

The days seem to be flying by.  I can't believe the school year is almost over and I haven't done everything yet.  Time for some late nights I suppose.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Oh I love this, Eva! I bet your son loves it! The colored dinos look just like his real ones. I have this stamp, too, but still haven't inked it up yet (argh). The bookmark is a cute idea for your younger son.

Another cute journal! Cool, I didn't know there were different colored wires! Your little one is so cute, now you have to make 3 of everything! You're so productive getting ready for vacation and end of school. The most I can do is contribute to the class gift and hope I can remember to pack everything in my suitcase.
