Free to Be You and Me

The new term of the Crop Chocolate Focus Group starts this month and our first challenge is: Create a project based off of your favorite book.
Years ago my Aunt Diane, who was also my godmother gave me a book by Marlo Thomas called Free to Be You and Me. It came with a record and I remember playing those songs over and over again singing along every time! I have very fond memories of the stories and songs so when I saw the 35th anniversary edition at my niece McKenna's school book sale I snatched it up and gave it to the girls (my nieces McKenna and Harper) for Easter.
This layout it inspired by that book and all that it means to me. I haven’t done the journaling yet but I will be adding that.
