SWC #21 DT Creation!!

Hello Sunday's with Crissy Friends!!!!  Our Challenge for the month of September is Friendship~~~create anything you feel pertains to friendship--easy don't you think???
I have altered a notebook...needed a prezzie for a little boy

Colored with copics and pastel pencils.  Added background with TH stormy sky and vintage photo DI's.  Cut out image with SB peony nestie and the little sparkle around bottom of image is Viva Decor Holo iridescent glitter liner.  Papers are BG mannakech pack.  Dp under image was embossed using CB script folder and then swiped with TH walnut stain ink.  Edges were punched with EK Success paw print~~cute and fitting for this image :)  Sentiment is a Stampendous stamp.
Now the wooden fence.... I got at Michael's discount store and Inked by swiping with TH aged mahogany, then vintage photo and then alittle walnut stain....finished with Kaiser pearls~~I like how it turned out :)
Pic of inside cover~~once again used BG dp's and blue cardstock.  SB mega oval nesties used with sentiment from Hero Arts stamped with Rich Cocoa memento ink--added a MS butterfly and the background vines are a stamp I got from my mom...I like the softness it added :)
"This book belongs to" was computer generated and cut out with peony SB nesties.  The top and bottom dp was created using SU scallop border punch.  Both sentiments were outlined with Viva glitter liner too!! Love that sparkle LOL
This is the back cover.  BG dp with paw prints punch along edge and then added more MS butterflies and Viva decor glitter liner.
