Hi! Long time no blog...summer is in full swing here and finding time to craft has been a challenge, but that's okay. That's what summer is all about right?!
Today is my niece's 11th birthday. She's actually my BFF daughter, but my niece all the same. I was there minutes after she was born and she helped introduce DH and me, so she has a truly special place in my heart. She's a very talented and special young lady so no ordinary gift would do of course.
I decided to make her a journal/altered notebook. I wanted to keep it girly but since she is almost a teenager (gasp) I wanted it to have a mature look. I hope she fills it with stories, thoughts, doodles and dreams. Happy Birthday Cat!
I am linking this up with the Simon Says Stamp and Show "What Do You Say" challenge.
I am so proud to have also been picked as a Heroine over at A Blog Named Hero for their "Stretch Your Stamps" Challenge. Whoo Hoo!
