They are making the $1.00 journals at Michael's cuter than ever, but nothing is better than covering one for a one of a kind gift! It is so easy to bend the binder wires and slip the cover off and then to put it back on that you've gotta try it! I've used one of my favorite Edwin's (maybe even my FAVORITE!) and colored him up in bright colors to match the Bo Bunny paper.
My idea with the journal is for my nephew and his wife (We're seeing them today! Yeah!!). Their little guy is 2-1/2 years old and I think it would be fun for them to have this journal handy to write some of the funny things he says as he learns about language! (It doesn't hurt that Roberta's favorite color is orange, either!) What do you think of this idea?
You can also let me know what you think of the little "nose" shading I've given Edwin. Does it work or look silly?
Here are the copics I used:
Skin E000, E11, E30
Jeans BG10, BG72 and BG18
Lizard: YG21, YG23, YG17
Sneakers R22, R29, R46 and R59 with a little Y17 at the end for the orange highlight.
Shirt (had a tough time with this!) Y21, YR12, YR15, YR18
