When I was part way through this, the girls actually came into my "bank scraproom" and wanted to know what I was up to and could they help. Hmmmm. Well actually no you can't help with mine, but how about you make your own? They were so excited that I let them at my "new" stuff and not just the paper and bits I don't want any more. We found a couple of new exercise books and away they went! I did help them a little with the cutting to fit and possibly selecting papers that didn't clash toooo much, and they had a great time decorating their own books.
And here is what we all came up with. My efforts are standing up at the back and the girls are at the front. I think we did pretty well!
On the left below is Kiara's diary that I made for her, she is the one who is not really very girly girl at all - she chose the felt ice cream and the decorative tape. I used the decorative tape around the edge of the cover to give it some extra strength and durability, and it also adds a little extra finish to the design. And on the right is the one Kiara decorated for herself, with all elements chosen by her. I was fairly happy with MY choices for her when I saw we had picked the same background paper from the many choices we had! She punched out circles from a contrasting paper and stuck them on too, and she loved the headphones sticker.
And Alexa's notebooks, again I made the one on the left and Alexa did the one on the right. Too cute!
