Friends Forever Decorated Notebook

This a.m. was my oldest daughter's class Christmas party and she was to bring a gift for a girl to exchange with another girl in class. With that in mind, I knew just what I needed to create.

I always have on hand a few extra spiral notebooks for just these types of occasions. I buy them at Wal-Mart for just a few dollars each.

For this notebook,  I removed the spiral binding and decorated the cover with CTMH Notebook B&T Duos & My Stickease. I also used a fun new technique I learned at the CTMH Regional Celebration in San Antonio using CTMH Ready Alphabets and wax paper. I removed the letters from the contact sheet and put them onto the wax paper and sponged Desert Sand ink over them using a sponging tool from my distressing kit. I then stamped each letter using Black ink and the December Stamp of the Month.  I added a few extra accents using Dimensional Element Fresh Shapes and ribbon.



When I got up to the school to pick my daughter up, I was excited to hear that one of her best friends received her gift.

Now I need to get busy making a few extras for gifts for Christmas.

May you have a wonderful weekend. I plan to! God Bless, Pamela
