another teacher's notebook...

Last week I gave my daughter's teacher a piggy notebook. Well, she has two teachers and I didn't want the other teacher to feel left out. So this week the other teacher gets hers!

I was inspired to create this book simply by the stamp set. And with all the yummy birthday PTI goodies around lately I *had* to use my PTI inks, papers and ribbons. It started as a test to see how well the spring moss would look with the aqua mist. It's hard to see in the photo because of the shimmery stickles but the stamps was inked in spring moss and rock and rolled into the aqua mist ink. I really really like it. I didn't want too much shine, so I only glittered the aqua mist leaves... and it added just what I was looking for! I *LOVE* when that happens... like what, once a year! I didn't want the tree floating, so a squiggle with my copic YG63 grounded it.
