For a Very Special Girl

My lovely niece, Lacey, moved away from home a little bit ago. She is not too far, but far enough. She is working and will be starting college soon. I learned from my sister this morning that she has not received any mail yet. Oh my! Immediately I sat down to create this journal/notebook for her. I thought it might be a nice pick-me-up when days are a little tougher. Plus, i don't know a girl yet that doesn't like to write - whether it's lists, thoughts, or just our names, we like to write!

For this journal, I used sugar-coated MME paper. I covered the front, back, and inside covers. I have a bunch of random gerbera daisies, and I thought this one was a good match. The chipboard flower, message, and rub-ons are matching pieces from MME. The ribbons are random from my stash. These are so fun and easy to make - really! I have found that I like CTMH's Bonding Memories the best for adhering paper to the composition book. And I've tried a lot of different adhesives on these! When it comes to the big things, I use CTMH's Liquid Glass as an adhesive. That really holds well!

Enjoy - off to create some more!

Stunning- Love the flowers and your use of colors. Gosh, I wish we lived close. I want to get into that artistic brain of yours and drive around!

Oh, I love it! And I know Lacey will really enjoy not only getting mail, but a package like this! Thank you for thinking of her!
