because you asked so nicely...

i had a few requests this week to see what i'd been creating with my BIA this week...and because you asked so it is!
its a notebook for Shimelle's latest class...just somewhere to jot down my thoughts and ideas from her daily prompts...and hopefully one day get them translated onto LO's...but you know me by now...i don't like to rush these things! lol

i made a closure with some wired ribbon, and a ribbon slide i've had for the best part of forever...the ribbon is attached with the red tape i love on the outside of the back of the notebook {it doesn't show like a wet glue would}, but i used wet glue to attach the clip...i didn't want it falling off and getting lost down the back of someone's sofa when i'm out and about...

the the pp i've from an ancient K&Co. kit and i've simply added glossy accents for a little bit more oomph. the pages are all the plain coloured papers i had left over from my card making history...not acid free...but perfect to use up here...i am scribbling all over them i didn't want anything too decorative :0)


as a little bit of Halloween fun...i couldn't resist cutting a toothless grin out of this pumpkin to replace Uncle Alan at the dinner table as he couldn't make it this week!! lol he was quieter than normal ;0)

sorry alan...what with you being an orthodontist and all...i just couldn't resist it!!

Your book to hold your stories is very elegant - a really serious writer's journal!
