Second post

I have been working on a craft/sketchbook for our goddaughter, Nicole. Here are some pictures of the project.

 I was trying to decide which nautical paperclip to use with the book....I like the whale.
Last year, before the Katy, TX Archiver's closed I picked up some beach theme scrapbook paper. I used my Cricut Expression2 to create her name for the front. The mermaid is from CC Designs.

On the left, my son had sewn the purple paper to create a pocket. 

I put a little note in the book so she would know what type of paper was inside. The paper can be used with stamps, markers, paints etc. 

This is the back inside cover and pocket.

This is the back cover, it also has some pockets. 

Have a great day!:0)
