It is done!

Yahoo! I got the notebook done for my friend yesterday. I want to show it to you but first I must tell you about where we are going. Thursday - Saturday we will be at the Northwest Christian Education Conference. It is at a big church called Overlake in Redmond (about 2 hours away). In total there will be four people attending the conference. Carol and I Thursday - Saturday and Kelley and Ann on Saturday. I do think I'll make little notebooks for Ann and Kelley, too. In total we will be attending 20 one hour education blocks on anything from games to how to teach kiddos about Jesus. On Thursday Carol and I will be taking pre-conference intensives which are two hour classes...one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We are done at 3 p.m. on Thursday and we are going to meet our husbands for dinner at Claim Jumper. I'm excited because I get to see Todd during the week and 'cuz I get to try out Claim Jumper. I hear the food is great and the portions are HUGE!

Okay, onto the artwork. I made this notebook with the same idea as the notebook I showed you yesterday. I really liked the flower so I went ahead and used it again but added an On Board Accents flower on the bottom to take up a little bit more room on the bottom of the notebook. For her name I used an On Board Lower "c" and covered it with paper. Big Deal Alphabet provides the rest of the name. I've very pleased with how well the name fits in that area. Finally, some grosgrain ribbon to segment the notebook and I was done. Very easy (once I figured out what I wanted to do) and I really like my results. On the inside is a little pink stickie from Accents and Elements Little Reminders that says This Belongs To just in case she sets it down and forgets it somewhere. I may add some Stickles on the flower but I don't want it to get all over her so I haven't decided yet. So...do you think she'll like it? I'm very excited to give it to her! Just to clarify here is what I used to put this together. Stamps: Office Accouterments and Big Deal Alphabet. Paper: Notations DP, Whisper White. Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery. Accessories: Grosgrain Ribbon, On Board Accents, On Board Simon Lower, and Sticky Tape.

I will not be posting Thursday - Saturday and I will miss you all but I'll make sure I'm back on Sunday!

Have a wonderful Monday!
