For the cover page, I knew I wanted Hadley's name and colorful bunting but then I felt like I should add something to the middle. I'm not sure I love the beaded stars, but it does add some sparkle.
This page was so hard to figure out! I saw the idea on Pinterest, for a turtle who can hide in his shell, but there were no instructions and it took me forever.
I ended up connecting the head and tail with a ribbon that can be pulled either direction, to make the head hide or to pull it out. The problem is that if the ribbon is pulled too hard, the turtle could come all the way out of his shell!
