ICS challenge

If you hadn't already guessed I love making note books and have loads - all for different projects etc and since I got my Bind-It-All (thanks Lana) . . . well there's no stopping me. I recently made myself another notebook to use for all my ideas for the schools up and coming "Art Week" and was busy jotting down notes in the Staff Meeting when Dee (Deputy Head) noticed my book. She is like me a consummate "to do list" person but she uses loads of paper stapled together or attached with Treasury tags. So as a treat, I thought I would make her a notebook and I used the ICS sketch as my inspiration.

I have probably (!) added a little bit extra to the notebook than the original sketch wanted but the notebook just needed these extras! Seriously it did ! Dee loved it as well - thankfully!

Papers: "In with the Old" from Funky Fairy
Letter stickers: Making Memories
Rub ons: 7 Gypsies
Chipboard: Basic Grey "Boxer"

I hope everyone has had a great weekend. We have spent today watching Aaron play hockey but unlike the other weekend, he was smothered in goo to ensure no wind burn this week! Just a quick trip to the emergency doctors to check out his ankle injury instead! You can't win them all!

Have a great week everyone,
