Kids Just Want to Have Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to the Kinderstampo Kids Just Want to Have Fun Blog Hop!!! You should have joined me from visiting Meighen at Scrappin_3rdeeschik - wasn't her coloring book adorable?!

The project I have for you today is a family coupon book. I have divided it into three sections - a section of coupons for the kids to redeem with mom or dad, a section for the kids to redeem with each other, and a section for mom or dad to redeem for a little help. :) I used the Bind-it-all and SEVERAL Cricut cartridges to made this book - if any one wants more details let me know and I will post it later. I perforated each page with my CutterBee perforating tool.










For blog candy I am giving away an Everyday Greetings stamp set by Scrappy Moms Stamps.


Just leave me a comment in order to enter the giveaway - if you don't already follow and enjoyed what you see here I would love for you to join in and follow me. :)

I hope you like my Fun Time Coupon Book - thank you for visiting me today. Your next stop on the hop is Nicole at Canandian Nickel Scrap'n - just click HERE.

Have a great day!
