Here are some of the things I made for Leah (Karen's friend who is turning eleven) for her birthday. The first is a small pig which I colored with copics (with Leah's favorite colors -- green and turquoise). I used copics to make dots on the pig and then used the copics to color the lace! I wrote Leah's name on the other side of the pig, but I hate my handwriting -- so I am not sharing! :) I love the lace skirt - which looks SO adorable in real life!
I also made a journal for Leah using Papertrey Ink's Friends Till the End stamp set. It was easy to create this journal with a little ink and some ribbon. The front window has Leah's name with the Trajan alphabet set. What is nice is the front window is a pocket, so she can slip in a photograph and personalize the journal for her end of the year fifth grade photos and entries....
This kraft journal was a leftover in my supply closet -- a target dollar spot purchase ions ago!
I used a rubicoil coil from my stash -- it is a turqoise blue!
