Love, Elsie

I made these mini notebooks for my neighbor's daughters across the street. They are a great family and one of the first that we met when we moved here...10 years ago! They were just about pregnant with their first daughter...their girls are now 9 and 7!! It's astounding how fast the time goes!

I got this Love, Elsie paper at EP (check it out - there's no site like it!!) and the ribbons are from varying sources...mostly these days I find great ones at Jo-Ann's and Michael's. I also covered the inside covers with solid papers that coordinate with the wild front cover. I used the SU! scallop punch along with the 1 1/4" circle punch and used SU!'s western alphabet for their monogram. The matching pen has the same paper - rolled up in the barrel - as the covers and the cap has a scrap of coordinating ribbon. I hand delivered these the other day with my kids and the girls loved them!
