Altered notebook

Totally Papercraft is a new challenge blog and their first challenge is to create anything with the theme of FRIENDS.
This was a really cheap notepad and I took it apart - tarted it up - and put it back together again!  The image is from Karens Doodles - really like these images and this was my first use of this image.  I made this for a very good friend and the sentiment is just perfect!   The image means that it also fits into Fab n Funky challenges which was to use a digi image.
The sketch was from Papertake Weekly - enjoyed it but am always a little torn - I want to put on more but am mindful of the sketch and also that the notebook needs to be relatively durable without bits and bobs to drop off!
What doesnt show up too well is the embossing on the dark purple paper.
And the love that this pair are showing for each other (and the love that I feel for my friend) makes it qualify for the paper popsicles challenge - which was....LOVE

Ok thats me all done

thanks so much for looking - and dont forget to check out my image swap here
