It's time to start your next decade, Kimi!!

I LOVE turning a new decade.
 And I probably have my mom to thank for knowing that growing older is GREAT!  Hop the hop along with us...and leave comments along the way!  We have some fun prizes up for grabs as well!!
I hope you have arrived from Cricut Chick's Blog.  If not, start with Tanya's blog so you won't miss any of the birthday celebration.

Some of Kimi's favorite things: 
Rumple Ribbon, daisies, pink and green color comb, and any kind of music!

I created this fun notebook for Kimi to keep track, make lists, and plot some fun trips during this upcoming year...or decade!!  The stamps from Starving Artistamps.  Basic Grey Papers. I used Glue Dots © to adhere this super fun notebook together!  Did you know that they aren't just dots. They have GLUE LINES, as well! (But Minis are perfect for those small flowers!)

Inside view:
a white pad of paper, 
and a pocket for any other thing she needs to keep track of!

Off you go to Christine's blog.

Great notebook idea!!

Ellen Jarvis said...

Now Dawn, I think the only thing of Kimi's favorites that I didn't see on your fantabulous project was the sound of Mama Lovebug crooning in her Marilyn Monroe sound-a-like voice. It's such a special project ... beautiful ... and I like your attitude about growing older. We're like wine and cheese, growing better and moldier with time. LOL!!

Lots of Love and Happiness,
Ellen ♥ CardMonkey
