Kayla's book

Every year I make Michaela (my daughter) a small book for her to write in about herself. Information about herself, books, music, t.v shows, who her friends are & I always leave a spot for a photo.
In this year I have add a full page for Twilight for her & have put one of the Edwards done in copic's, as you can see I have a lot to learn. 
I hope you like looking at Kayla's Book If you wish to learn more about this book you can contact me by email, I haven't added all the pagers just my favourites.

Used: Not everything maybe in this list 
CS: Bella Rose DSP, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette,  Stamps: Good Friends, Jumbo Outline Alphabet, Trendy Trees.  Ink: Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black.  Other: Ribbon Satin Ribbon Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain, Riding Hood Red Taffeta, Designer Buttons Bouquet, Brads Filigree Vintage, Earth Elements, Petty in Pink, Accents & Elements Flower Fusion Too.


I have caved in, yes I am the proud owner of a set of Copic's markers. I haven't had much time to play with them, between studding, three kids & a 14yr daughter who loves them as much as me. 
I think I have have looked at them more than coloured with them. But yesterday I spent the day at a friend house Jackie & we had a lot of fun stamping & colouring (thanks Jackie for showing what you know).
As you may or may not know my daughter Michaela & I are fans of Twilight & while I was at Jackie's yesterday she showed me a stamp call Edward (I know I am a little behind sorry) he is so cute I think I stamped about 5 of him before I left I will be sure to put my Edwards on over the next few weeks for you to see.

Thank you Beryl I love it:)

A small Thank You
