Sketch Notebook

I needed a new sketch book so i could scribble down all the card layout and sketches i find on challenges etc. I did make one but it's tiny tiny and no more room really so thought i would go the whole hog and get a much bigger one with tons of pages! Of course a plain black one wouldn't really go with all my pretty crafty stuff so of course it needed a bit of altering and glamouring up!
And here is what i came up with...

I made to look like my two little girlies, aren't they cute!! I used the cute WRS Mia Gardening & Mia With Flower stamps. Coloured them with Copics of course! Clouds are Die-namics Flat Bottom Clouds & Grass is a Martha Stewart Punch. The fence is a Magnolia die, letters are Thickers and tons of ribbon from my stash!
