I so am going to get the Father Knows Best Set that premiered Monday, LOVE IT!

Some differences I made to the construction of my wallet were placing a slit in the fold before I used red line tape to "stitch" it closed. I also used the 1/ 8" paper punch at the ends of the slit to prevent splitting. (This is where I inserted my card stock for the photos.)
I also placed a two pocket credit card holder on the left side of the wallet and a one slot on the right side.
"Stitch", I did not sew my wallet my stitching is faux (redline tape was used).
My wallet is covered with iron on Vinyl and can actually be used as a wallet. My Husband loves it and is using it as you read, how fun is that!

Measurements for photo holder to hold 4 photos
8 1/2" by 3"
Score at 3 5/8" and 7 1/2"

Insert 1st piece into the slit that was cut into the wallet fold.

Family time...
Below is our 2 year old PRINCESS! My Sister gave her this dress up dress for Easter now it is an everyday item for her wardrobe. She even was able to wear it out for breakfast on Tuesday, hey she scored a candy treat from a Grandpa who could not stop laughing at her.

My Sister also spoiled our middle girl with some new clothes, just because (is that not nice or what). She was so happy to get them and on Tuesday she wore her High School Musical outfit to school. See my unhappy camper in the background- she comes home everyday from school so tense it is hard for me to deal with- Teenagers?!

Happy Stamp Day!
