Crafts: Personalized Baby Books

Rather than give a book with just random characters on the cover, I printed out photos of the grandmothers and grandfathers and mod podged them to the cover of the book, thus personalizing them for the baby.
For a book about Soccer, I mod podged a childhood photo of the expectant parents from their soccer playing days.
And in this counting book, I mod podged several photos of the family pet so that he appears as one of the "counts" on each page. 
So cute!
I am linking to  many of these BLOG PARTIES

That is a fabulous idea! I've never thought of that. It would also be cool to make a new book with modge podge using an old board book or an inexpensive one from the dollar store.
