Preschool Journal Cover for my Granddaughter

I was really inspired this weekend viewing some lovely things on line and decided to create this journal cover for my Granddaughter.  She is starting to create things and i thought this would be perfect for her pages.

What i did was cover a journal using many dies and two images from Tiddly Inks.  The one image is the schoolhouse (for only $1 at the shop) and a sweet image called Donna's Adventures.  This image was the reason i found Tiddly Inks years ago.  I've colored her up to look like my grand daughter.

Here are a list of dies i used for this journal:
from Joy Crafts- Butterfly border- 6002/0251, Lacey Square frame- 6002/0147, Lace edge- 6002/0149.  From Marianne Designs Craftables-clock- CR1234; Doohickey die -Butterfly Dreams Magnolia collection/Scallop Tag.

Don't forget to ask to see if we still have the above dies in stock at Dutch Paper Crafts!

Copics used:
schoolhouse-R35, 37, 39, E31, 34
flag- BG11, 13
Donna-skin- R20, 22, YR000, 00
