I just finished this note book for a friend I work with. Her initials DR, even with the periods it looks like DR. LOL! Some pretty pink, soft floral paper, paint, then crackle medium, then paint; stamped images and a touch of floral ribbon finished the book. I had forgotten about sheer ribbon and hot glue OUCH! The book was originally the bright pink you see along the spine and black. I think it looks better this way, hope she feels the same Tuesday when I give it back to her.
