Ladybug Love

Hi everyone. I created this journal book using a gorgeous Digi image from Crafts And Me called "Ladybug Love" by artist Hannah Lynn. I made this Journal book by altering a Composition Notebook. I make alot of these for family and friends as they love them and I still have not made one for myself yet.

I wanted to color her hair in teal colors and I'm happy the with the way it turned out. I printed this image bigger than I would if I was making a card as this book is about 8x10.

I used some decorative paper and aryclic sticker borders, chipboard flourish that I covered in black soot distressing ink, Big Pink Prima flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts teal roses and small Prima roses, Butterflies, Spellbinder dies, Foam tape(Kids Fun foam), K&Company cloth button brads, Pearl pins, Basic Grey Sultry DP and Copic markers.

Here in the US you can buy these Composotion Notebooks for about a $1 or less if they have a big before school supply sale( that's when I stock up at .25 to .50 cents each) and they make great gifts.

I'm not for sure yet who this one is for, but I will probably make a bookmark to go with it later.
Well it is way past time for me to be in bed as my kids will be up by 6 in the morning. They don't know what sleeping late is at all. Sure wish they did so I could sleep in.
Have a wonderful weekend.
