Since moving into the new neighborhood, I have met many nice neighbors and its a wonderful melting pot! I decided to make a few gifts for them and since I was feeling the need to alter something, I decided on this chunky notebook. The notebook is the Five Star brand, and is thick, yet small enough to tuck in your purse. I also made some coordinating notecards to go with this set. The Cosmobella fit perfectly for Tonya, she is just a sassy little thing! I was going to put some sort of funny sentiment in the circle, but seeing as how I don't know her all that well yet, the monogram was probably a better choice. The patterned paper is from Crate Paper and I used both sides...the bottom half of the notebook is just the flip side of the patterned page. I used my PTI stamps to do the lines in Tea Leaves(Dew Drops) and then used my Black Spica Pen to draw the lines and dots...it really helped the green lines pop! The ribbon is from my scrap box and I adhered a couple of Making Memories brads to hold it in place. Now I just need to get this wrapped up and sent over!
