Money Saving Monday!

Or should I say Too Late Tuesday? LOL. I completely forgot that yesterday was Monday! If you know how to set blogger so that I can set it to post at a later date, please let me know! Thanks...
On to Money Saving Monday-

You can buy one for $1 and sometimes more or you can create one from old cereal boxes like my friend Wendy did HERE. I bought this one at Michael's and, with the help of my talented sticker-loving 3 year old, created a color book!

I traced off the pattern onto one each red, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, black, and white cardstock. Then I cut it out and glued it onto the chipboard pages. I used my adhesive runner but spray glue is a better choice.

Then I let my 3 year old go through his box of stickers and he identified the colors and then stuck them to the corresponding page of the book.

At the end, we used some of my scrapbook stickers that I recieved as a RAK. They were rainbow themed and they were perfect for the back cover! I wrote "put them all together and what do you get?" and we stuck all the little rainbows on!

Don't forget! The Mommysavers crop will be hosted by ME! Starting this Friday! The Frugal Scrappers (Alicia sent you!!) will be having a "Frugal Scrappery" (similar to a crop with AWESOME prizes!!) on June 25!!
