Reasons I Love You MDS Swatchbook

Front of book
Recently we celebrated my daughter's preschool teachers' birthdays.  To help with the celebration, I had the preschoolers stamp their fingerprints inside a stencil to create an apple or a heart for their birthday cards.  Afterwards I asked the preschoolers what the teachers have taught them this year.  All of their responses were adorable and I didn't change how they said them (no corrections in grammar or incomplete thoughts).  But I was in need of a way to present the teachers with quotes from their students so I went straight to MDS (My Digital Studio).  I quickly downloaded the "Reasons I Love You" swatchbook template to get me started.  The best thing about this download is that I can use this template over and over again for other projects including a Reasons I Love You book for their grandparents.  All I had to do was change some of the wording and type the preschoolers' responses onto each page.  I also added the kids' pictures on the opposite page so the teachers could remember their 2013-2014 Pre-K Class.  It was so simple and came together so quickly.  The hardest part was printing it correctly on my printer.  Next time I will give myself more time to complete a project like this and have it printed through Stampin' Up!'s printing services.
