Papertrey Peeps Challenge #10

Hi Peeps!

Our granddaughters are in the NYC School District and just finished up last Friday. They both received great grades and glowing comments from their teachers (Oh to be in Kindergarten or Second grade again. ) I really wanted to send something to congratulate them, bolster their confidence and inspire them to keep reading over the summer.

Back for the February Blog Hop I made a mini journal for Arianna and put it away to tuck in her Christmas stocking. (You can see it here.) Well, what better than to make another for Taylor, and maybe satisfy Heather's challenge at the same time. It came close.

The Chartreuse really clashed with the green pen, so it's New Leaf. The torn note paper is purple, the scalloped circle is turquoise, and the sentiment form Take Note was stamped in charcoal gray.
I added the yellow ribbon to match circles on the pen.

I added a gift card for Barnes and Noble for each of them and made cards inspired by this week's Mojo Monday #145.

Here's the whole set now well on it's way to Staten Island. Hope they enjoy!!

Thanks to Heather for a very challenging Challenge! What she makes look so fabulous and easy is quite difficult for some of us. This was a fun exercise outside of my usual box.

Thanks for dropping by.

What a wonderful gift - and what a wonderful way to encourage a young learner! You really made great use of the challenge colours! I love your cards - they look so cheery and happy - and they will brighten the day of the little 'stars' that they're being sent to too! :0)!!
