Brian's Book

My husband has a dear friend that passed away in a plane crash. Sadly we were not able to make it to the funeral. We wanted to do more than just send a card. So I came up with the idea of making this book.

I made a front and back cover.

And then had a page dedicated to each letter in his name.

I thought that it was fun that I was able to make the letters look like camo because he was big into hunting.

I had my husband think of things about his friend that started with the letters in his name and then wrote them on the coresponding page. On the last page my husband wrote a letter to his friends widow and children.


I then laminated the pages and bound them all together.

I hope that the family can enjoy this, and see Brian thru anothers eyes.
