Little Booklet

What a fun challenge we have this week for Digital Tuesday Challenge. We get to pretend we are a kid again and make something super FOR THE KIDS. When I make a project for a child, I always go to something that I would have liked. Since I was a bit of a tomboy, this can work out well for the boys too.

Our sponsor this week is My Grafico who is offering a free stamp SET and 20% off your next purchase! Considering all the wonderful images/sets there are, you probably will use that right away :o)

My Grafico gave the DT a really fun set called Carousel Set to play with this week. The set comes with 18 adorable images. This is the largest.

I was not sure what to make with it at first since I printed it out so large. (on the computer it did not seem so large, lol) I decided to make one of my all time favourite items, a notebook. I have had a love affair with paper ever since I can remember. I started hording it before 1st grade! I remember have a drawer of sheets of paper I would not let anyone touch, lol. I was the only one who could look and touch my treasure.

As I grew up and entered school, I fell in love with blank notebooks. They kept paper so nice and neat rather than thrown in a drawer. Soooo...that is what I made.

I used leather paper from Paper Temptress, which is a very sturdy paper, almost impossible to rip. I kept to the nice bright colors that little ones like, keeping my coloring simple. The only embellie being the bows so there is not much to fall off as the little one uses it.
I am excited to see what you make for the little ones in your life. Don't forget that you must use a digi on the project (image, sentiment or paper). No complicated rules for Digital Tuesday Challenges, lol Enjoy playing!!!
