I thought I'd leave a nice thin black border around the book as it creates a lovely frame and definition. I was really going to go for turquoise and brown, but somehow the pink and red caught my eye again. I really hope she likes it. (Edited 28 Nov - Linda LOVES her book... one very happy client... yay!)
The background paper was a gift from my friend Sandra and I've been keeping it for something special. The rest just followed from there. This is my newest Tilda which arrived on Friday. She is Ribbon Tilda and was purchased from 7 Kids College Fund.
I added some Star Dust stickles to those little hearts and around the oval nestie for a bit of glitz and glam. Tilda has been coloured with Copics... I am really trying to get those folds right, so be kind... After reading the interview they had with Zoe, the Queen of Colouring in the new Magnolia magazine, I'm encouraged to follow her advice... practice.. practice.. practice and don't compare yourself to anyone else !
Altering a notebook is such a lovely gift to give someone, especially now at Christmastime, don't you think? So... why not give it a go yourself.
Can you believe it, 26 days to go until Christmas!.... I will definitely be burning the midnight oil this week to get some more Christmas cards made for my own stash, as these will need to be posted soon. If you've seen any Quick and Simple ones in blogland, send me the link for inspiration please.
Thanks so much for popping by. Always a pleasure reading your comments and a very warm welcome to a new follower. It's always nice seeing a new face, as it makes blogging so worthwhile.
Happy crafting to you all, hugs Sharon x
