New Challenge Blog & Covered notebooks

Do you like to make other things than cards? Then this is something for you - a biweekly challenge blog where you can make anything - except cards. I'm lucky to be a part of it's new design team.

We at ABAC Challenge Blog are gearing up for our kick-off on Sept. 2!  We are busy creating and need your help!  Help us spread the word about our new challenge blog!
To help motivate you, we are offering some blog candy, and it's easy to enter! Check Out the details at Anything But A Card blog.

And here are some covered notebooks I made as party favors for my daughter's B-day party. This is something you could enter into ABAC challenge - if it was already up and running! :)
I used lot of my old papers - you know - those huge packs that are such a good deal and then you are stuck with 300 sheets of paper. Each notebook has a ribbon bookmark.

I was a bit at lost with the boy notebook - didn't want to make it look too girly, nor too plain. The spine is covered with home decor tape - it worked pretty good. The letters where white chipboard, so I just painted them with different Copic colors.
Pictures are Sweet Pea Stamp, watercolored.

I'm entering them into the following challenges:
Use it Tuesday - Use that ribbon
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Scrapalicious USA - anything goes
