Fashions by Olivia

My daughter loves to draw and create and loves to make up all sorts of 'businesses' and fun things. I think she's already figured out how she's going to make her first million! hehe Anyway, she wanted a journal to put all of her 'fashion ideas' into so she could have her own fashion journal. So I came up with this:
I found a plain chipboard journal I had in my stash and set out to decorate it with some fun goodies from Noel Mignon's Sweet Sue kit (5 left!). I seriously looove this kit!! See that brown 'shape' sticking out from the Sassafras borders? That's the little strip of My Mind's Eye paper that you cut off. I always save those for when you need to add a little touch of something to project.
I cut the scallop square with my Sizzix and added part of the Prima jewels (just snipped the part off that I wanted to use), added that pretty blue flower, and added the October Afternoon alphas & AC thickers from previous NM kits.
The pink ribbon from the Seaside Cottage kit (sold out) finished it off. Cause my girl loves pink :) The great thing about this book is that once she's done with this phase of her life, I'll keep it as a little scrapbook of a snapshot of her childhood. And she can look back on this when she's older. So on the inside cover I added just a few leftover Sassafras borders with the 'eight' card & an Elle's Studio journaling card with her age & date.
And now I have to work on Volume 2...because this one is already filled! Here's a peak of the inside:
 And her fashion prices are very reasonable, too ;)
