My dear little friend and next door neighbor, Montana (12 years old, 7th grade) came to me asking for help with a school project. Her assignment was to make a book about the Civil War. There were some guidelines and restrictions, but the design and overall theme and look were up to each student.
Before you gasp and think that I made the book for her, let me clarify a few things. Montana has been stamping with me for 1 1/2 years. She is such a little doll, much more mature and responsible than most 12 year olds, so she has full access to my stamp room and everything in it!! What a lucky girl!! Since we have spent so much time together, Montana has become quite a fabulous little paper crafter. That having been said, she did get some help from me on the project, but only for the sake of time. Every idea, technique or design in the book is one that she could do completely on her own, with no assistance from me.
So please allow me to share with you our project: "The Civil War: A to Z". I loved the project and will always cherish the time I got to spend with my darling little friend, Montana. Didn't she do an awesome job????? And please, if you love the project, be kind enough to leave a comment for her. It will mean a lot to her, as she put her heart into every minute of making it.
(note: I didn't include every page of the book simply for space sake. The pages here are some of our favorites).
If you click on the last picture of this post, a larger version will allow you to read about the making of the book. If you have questions on how we did anything that you see, please send us an email and Montana and I will be happy to respond.
