Friendship Exchange over at Craftbubble was a success...

Over on craftbubble, there has been a Friendship Exchange going on and this was my gift to one of the lucky bubblers! I'm pleased to report that she loved it, which is always nice to hear and considering this was my first ever try at making a notebook, its even better to hear how much it's appreciated!

I popped into Tesco and they have a bargain section where I found 2 packs of plain notebooks for £1, and I just thought to myself, what a lovely gift for someone if I jazzed it up, and I might even make one for myself too! As you can see, I just covered it in really nice jazzy paper, by Me and My Big Ideas which I bought from www.artymiss.co.uk and used one of my favourite Tilda stamps which I coloured with Promarkers. I added a few buttons, cute flowers and some sparkle to the flowers on the paper. To finish it off I then added some bows to the spine and 'voila', finished notebook!

Hope you like it!
