Another notebook

I made this notebook and bookmark as a token gift for the younger daughter of my neighbour Leah who does like craft and does have my blog address and may well see it here, if she's not out being a tom boy.

I made her sister one earlier and hopefully she hasn't seen that but with the very cold weather who knows how much time they will have been spending on the computer. They are both just a little gift for them as I thought most girls like to write something down.

The images are coloured with sakura pens with promarkers for the skin tones.  The papers were some magazine freebies and glitter paper. The button corners I didn't have in the right colour just yellow so I recoloured with Promarker.I addd ribbons to the spine and made a name bead charm for fun.Finally I added Leahs name to the frony in pink metalic card using one of the alphabet dies I have for my Bigshot. Really will have to get some more dies and utilise it better. Hope she likes it.


The bookmark I made to match and I slotted it inside.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-

The fairy knoll-anything goes
Digi doodles shops best-anything goes
Moving along with the times-anything goes
Sew many challenges-anything goes
Penrith crafts-anything but a card
Simon says-anything goes
ISB-not christmas and cute
