So I actually did this all by myself (pretty silly since I conscider myself a copy cat)
I thought of this while I was thinking of how to have my monster's make a thank you card for my aunt. I really want my girls to have memories of how they thought, wrote,what they liked etc. I came up with this:
First I printed the pages the pagination was tricky. I had to [actually] think of what goes where ha ha and what to print on the back of what pages.

the weather is:
(kind of like favorite things page)
I taught the 5 year old monster how to sew the book. I used a denim needle to poke the 4 holes. I then used regular thread doubled up and let her sew away. [Maybe some day I will use fabric]
If you would like me to send you the excel file, just email me.
