Mother's Day Mini Book / Card

This beautiful mini book is going to my mom for Mother's Day.  I learned about this technique from my old crafting friends, Jamie and Amy.  I have no idea where they got it, but the credit goes to Nancy Church.  I'm attaching the paper they gave me so you can have the directions too. 

**Edited to add the directions:

It was very easy to make, the folding was a tad tricky, but you can just fold it in the other direction if you make a mistake.  I filled the book with photos, stickers, quotes, and a personal message.  The quotes were:

"Mothers hold their children's hands for awhile - their hearts forever"  ~Unknown

"Grandma's are moms with lots of frosting"  ~Unknown  (I love this one!)

Do you like my black and white photos?  We received a pack of 4 x 6 photo paper with our printer, so I decided to try printing my own photos.  I was really happy with the results, I think I will buy some more paper next time I am at Walmart.  I used Photo Paper Plus Glossy II from Canon.  I could see a few lines on the pictures after printing, but nothing major, and nothing you can see until you look hard.  I also left a small fingerprint or two while cutting and gluing them, I think I should have waited a little longer to use them.  

PS:  No one tell my mom what she's getting!
