New Quiet Book Pages

Ah . . . now that felt good! I came home on Friday night and pulled out some crafts and just kept going all weekend. It's been a long time but the creative juices are flowing now. I decided to work on some new quiet book pages that I have been thinking about for a long time. First up:
ABC's - This is a little pocket that will hold some ABC flashcards (once I run by the store to get them laminated).123's - this is ABC's brother page. This little pocket will hold some number flashcards as soon as they are laminated.Barn - this is one of my most favorite new pages. I got this idea from Homemade by Jill and The Crafty Chicks. The barn doors open and there is a trough/pocket for the finger puppet animals to stay.
Colors - this pages matches colors with their words.Dinosaurs - this is another new favorite for me and the boys. The dinos stay inside the pond when they're not being played with. This is another idea from Serving Pink Lemonade (she has tons of great felt ideas!) and then I found the cute dino templates from a google search. Love it!
I need to make a quick trip to the craft store for some gray felt and another page will be ready to show. In addition, I have two other pages nearly finished - just some sewing on of velcro and making some aliens. Can't wait - too cute! I'll post them as soon as the details are finished.
I've been dreaming about new quilt ideas so stay tuned - I'm feeling a new quilt coming on.

Beautiful quiet book pages! I love how you turned my dinosaur mat into a quiet book page and those dinosaurs are oh so cute!
