Altered Notebook

Hi I hope all of my american friends are having a great Thanksgiving and all my non American friends are having a great day.
Today I want to share this notebook that I have altered and decorated for one of my neices I have to make 3 as my sister has twin girls and another younger daughter and I have chosen to do the same stamped image but change the colours so this cute stamp will pop up another 2 times over the next couple of days but it is a beauty.
I wanted to keep it quite flat so I used hardly any embellishments but opted for nesties and punches as the decoration.
I have used Belles n Whistles Bear hug stamp,Bo Bunny Crazy Love papers,Martha Stewart doily punch(a fave of mine),Nestabilities ovals and scallop Ovals,Shapeability fancy tags and Promarkers.The writing is my own handwriting which has been written with a sakura white gel pen.
Although for christmas I wanted to keep it non christmas looking so they can use it all year.
I hope you like it.
I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Charisma-One for the girls
Crafters companion-Sketch,one for the girls or both
Everybody Art-use shapes
Passion for promarkers-old n new(old stamp,new papers)
Make it crafty-Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday-layer upon layer
Die cut Dreams-Anything but a card
Fab n funky-going with the flow

Thanks for visiting me
Lorraine xx
