Notebooks Designed For Girls With An Attitude

I got a few composition notebooks at our local Wal-Mart while out school shopping with the kiddos last week. As a special surprise, I decided to glitz them up a bit and slip them into each of my three kids backpacks on the first day of school.

These are the two I made for the girls. My youngest daughter, whom we affectionately refer to as "Bug" loves playing with my stamps sets and she picked out this "Be Yourself" Stamp and Girly Girl stamp from one of my CTMH retired stamp sets.

So last night while they were sleeping, Mommy was up creating.

 Can you pick out which one is Bug's and which one is Bella's?

So this one is Bella's. This notebook is a little bit girly, a little bit wild, and has lots of attitude. Just like mia Bella.

I used Smoothie Card stock and B&T Duo Paper from the Roxie Collection. It's hard to see, but I added little glitter accents down the sides on the little rhinestone prints. I actually used three different stamp sets on this one. As you can see I used the rose stamp from the Roxie WOTG Exclusive Stamp Set, Instant Memories Stamp Set, and a retired stamp set of "Just Be Your Self."

I can't wait to see Bella's face when she spots this inside her backpack on Monday!!

This Note book is for my Bug. Classy, Girly, with a smidgen of that attitude going on. Her two favorite colors are green and pink. A lot of the CTMH products used to make this notebook covered are now retired. I love the cute little saying, "Be Yourself... Everyone else is already taken."

As a mother raising two girls, I think one of the most important things that girls need learn is to accept who they are. Bella's had a rough time over the years dealing with people judging her outward appearance before her surgeries, and at this delicate age she's just starting to blossom in knowing who she is.

Maybe these two notebooks are a little too sophisticated for a fourth grader and a preschooler, but I think their just perfect for celebrating my girls and who they are, and who they will become.

Tomorrow, I'll show you the special notebook I've designed just for Boy. He can't wait for school to start, and honestly, neither can I!
