Christmas Comes to My Granddaughter's Wordless Book

The caterpillar's are out enjoying the snow! 

I've had fun bringing Christmas to my granddaughter's wordless book. I added a Santa hat for the larger storyteller caterpillar. I will have to go back and have a look at some of the earlier pages to see if any other storyteller caterpillar needs a hat or some other prop, such as an engineer's hat on the train page! After making the outdoor scene, I thought it would be fun to create an indoor Christmas page.

                               How about antlers for this storyteller caterpillar!

Now it's time for me to put all the completed pages together as a book  I will adhere the blue decorated pages to the larger color backgrounds. I'm putting the pages in a scrapbook album. The plastic page holders in the album will protect the story sheets and allow Sierra to take the pages out and change their order.

This has been such a fun project. If I have time I may add another page or two. I have an idea for a new page - a beach scene to go with an underwater scene that I have already finished. I've enjoyed sharing this project on my blog. Have a Merry Christmas!

If you would like to see some of my other story pages just scroll down and visit my earlier posts.

Let's visit more pages of Sierra's wordless book!

There are so many places in the community that I can use as inspiration for my wordless book. Of course I have limited myself to the cartridges I have with my Cricut and maybe a few cutouts which I can design using my Pazzel. As I said in an earlier post, one of my purposes is to make use of my Cricut which I have rarely used. 

My husband loves trains, so I knew I wanted to include a train scene. My granddaughter can even see a train go by in the distance from her upstairs family room window. She should have a lot to say about this page.

The following are a few more pages that I have completed. They include an airport, complete with cactus since we live in Arizona.  There is also a seaport and the front of a house.
