Now ,, I know that this notebook bears a striking resemblance to the notebook from last weeks challenge ,,, but my Mum took that one ,,, and Amy needs one too ,,, whether she thinks so or not !!! lol :-) I love making these !! so easy to do with a bind it all !! love me gadgets ,,, :-)

I used a cute House Mouse Taking Notes image, I love this type when you can write the text ,, Amanda writes is another one ,, so versatile ! ,, anyways ,,, coloured with copics and the edges inked with Vintage Photo distress ink. The papers are Basic grey from the Kraft and Manila packs, I added some ribbon and a flattened chrome cap with an ‘A’ for Amy from the vintage typewriter set, LOVE these :-)

Oh Hun... I will share my tissue box with you... I know the emptyness that you are going to get. At one side it's great.. their next step in life... but letting go is the other side... and a path to learn...

For me the good side is that I finally will have a craft room now!!!

Hang in there honey!!
Love you! Hugs
