Retro Notebook

Hi there!

Today I'm here to show you what I did for my inspiration post over at Zuri Artsy Craftsy Challenge Blog. I'd assume now you are acquaintance with Zuri's images, but if you are not, hop over to her blog, where you will find plenty of cute and free images to try on your colouring skills.

And this time, I've altered a notebook. It's for myself to go to school :oP. Not kidding. Hehe. I will use it to go to the lots of meetings and commitments that I have at my kids school, but the image and the papers remind me so much of my high school and early university days that for a moment when I was doing it I thought I was under 20 again!

Hope you like it :)

In this project: Digital stamp from Zuri Artsy Craftsy. Patterned papers from Hipster collection from Kate Hadfield Designs. Brown ric-rac ribbon. Cream and craft card.
