Dream Valley - Anything Goes

Hope everyone is having a fabby weekend so far :0)...apologies as this post is a little picture heavy..this week at Dream Valley Challenges "Anything Goes" i'm sharing a notebook i i have to say it was a bit of a labour of love as i altered the pockets on the inside too and the note book was fairly big..inbetween A4 and A5...

first of all i coloured up the images matching them with my papers :0)

and here's the finished book...


Inside Pockets

Dodgy pic of the whole thing :0)

i really want to share these close ups too along side ones i coloured when i first started  as i've really worked hard to improve my colouring and i think it's good to look back now and then so you can see how far you have come :0)

my first Daisy

all the images are coloured with Promarkers

  17. Hey there huni, no worries about the blog hopping not being so frequent.....I know EXACTLY how you feel!! Tried to comment on this earlier (whilst finally trying to catch up with blogging) and the comment box kept disappearing while I was typing?! So you'll know I'm not completely cracked if you end up with a few part started comments!!

    Anyway, fabulous notebook - I love all the pockets and I'm going to try and store that idea in my brain for future use. Gorgeous images and colours too.

    Hope you have a great weekend, Susie x
