This was for a swap over on Swap-Bot (which unfortunately looks like there may be quite a few flakers) where we had to make a notebook and fill it full of quotes in various categories for our partner. My partner had a nicely filled out profile and she absolutely loved her book (in fact she said it was the best swap package she had ever received!) which just tickled me bright pink.

I took a lot of inspiration from Teesha Moore's journaling style - I painted the pages with a watercolour paint first, then created borders out of scraps of scrapbooking paper, wrote the quotes in various colours via marker and then (and this is what took FOREVER) outlined every letter in black to really make them pop.

The book itself is cardboard cut from a giant waterheater box that is on our back porch at the moment. The spine is pink duct-tape and various types of cardstock are used throughout. It took me a while to make, and I kinda liked how it came out. It's the sort of thing I would like to receive, which is always important.

c&C welcome and encouraged.

I think it's a wonderful book, the cover is my fav, it's so pretty but still classy.
cc: you could have added some small things on the inside, like a feather, or a drawing or something small that could stand out on the borders.
Lovely book, and great quotes
