Look what I did today :)

Kids finally went back to school, I did a whirlwind clean as quick I could clean around the house ... and went and bought supplies to cover a notebook for Charlotte. She has just started in the pre-competitive class for gymnastics, where they start with a notebook that travels with them right through the levels, recording all their championship scores etc. At this level it's used for little congratulatory notes and stickers after each lesson. Seemed liked a good excuse to try covering a notebook, something I've had in my head to do for a while!



It's by no means perfect - I wrote the "ym" and it looked wrong, so drew and cut out the letters, but they didn't quite cover the writing, no matter how I arranged them - so the flowers are put to cover the line, I might still move that one off and just let the little line, that probably only I'd notice, show.

I need to buy a good alphabet stencil or stamp for letters like that - anybody got good ideas or suggestions?

Charlotte loves it - that's the main thing! Plus, I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon creating while having a lovely quiet house :)
