    That's a neat website! I bookmarked it for future reference.

    I made a number counting book for DS, but it's a bit different. I used cardboard cutouts shaped like a car that I got at the craft store in the dollar bin (5 for a buck!) and Disney Cars stickers that were included with a coloring book DS got for Christmas. One side of each car has the numbers and stickers to correspond; on the other side I wrote the numbers again and colored large dots. I used a ring clasp to hold it together. It's really cute. I carry it in my diaper bag and give it to him during shopping trips or doctor office visits. He loves it.

    Sure, if you tell me how!!

    Can I just copy/paste from my private stash on my computer? I'm not on Photobucket or anything like that. Do I need to be?

    How I add a photo:

    I right click on the photo, copy, and paste into the body of the post.

    OR...

    I upload the photo to photobucket and then add it from there.

    Okay, I tried the copy and paste method, and it didn't seem to work. I'm going to go create a photobucket account and try again. Stand by...

    Going to try again...

    Disney/Pixar Cars side:
    (numbers 1-5)
    Dots side:
    The shape cards were 5/$1 at Michael's, and it came with the ring connector. I have other sets (different shapes) that I plan to use to make sight words, color cards, etc. Oh, and even though the stickers were, well, sticky, I still glued them to make sure they never fall off.

    I bet they would. I haven't been to a Ben Franklin's in a long time (none around here) but I remember them being awesome craft stores!

    Those are great, I wonder if you put decoupage on them if it would help seal in the stickers and protect the card stock too.

    Now I want to go to a craft store to look for some, they would also make a great gift!

    I would LOVE to decoupage some local flowers for Nettie's counting book! Can I do that?
