Jacoby's Flip Book

After I did that scrapbooking layout of Jacoby's outfits my mother-in-law told me about a flip book that a lady in their ward had done for one of her kids, so I decided that sounded like a fun idea. I've been working on it for quite awhile, and it's not one of those projects you can hurry and do in a day because I had to take pictures of Jacoby's different outfits. I guess we could've played dress-up, but that didn't sound fun for either of us. :)
I'm pretty excited about how it turned out, except when I had it laminated it turned out a little bumpy and the pages were a little uneven after having it bound, but Jacoby doesn't care. I gave it to him on the way home and he seemed pretty excited.
These are just a few of the pages, but I had nine pages total. The picture below is the front cover and the last one is the back cover. My mom gave me the cute idea for the front and back covers. I love finding little crafts to do, and this was really fun. I cut each picture between the pants and shirt and that way it can be like a puzzle to match the right pants and shirt.
Also, it's fun to flip the shirts and pants so they don't match. This is a basketball outfit with his swimming suit. I included two pages in the book with basketballs because he loves them so much.
