Enjoy The Moment

Hi Guys~!
THis is just a little notebook I made for my daughter. She is going to use it as a kind of "autograph book" for all her friends to write in.
I'm using an image by Wags And Whiskers called "Thinking Of You". You can buy it from Bunny Zoe's Crafts here

Most of the ribbon is from my stash but the white ribbon is from Sew Sweet.
The paper is from my stash. The border punch is Martha Stewart and the pearls are a gift from Uli. Thanks, Uli!
The notebook I bought at a local dollar store.
The image was colored with Lyra Rembrant and Prismacolor pencils. (I mainly used lyras but I needed a more opaque white for the blouse which was where the prismacolors came in. Also I used the prisma cream for highlights.)

I am using this card as my Catered Crop project, you can join in and follow the recipe here:
Here's your FTR20 recipe.
