Beach Happy - Notebook

Morning all! I have a little notebook to share with you today. Remember me mentioning that I bought a Cinch? Well this is my first make with it. This was originally supposed to be for the Deep Ocean Seaside/Beach Challenge a couple of weeks  back, but I had a couple of weeks where everything just went horribly wrong and my crafting was somewhat curtailed.

But better late than never right?

 I coloured up an older Saturated Canary digi that I've had for a long time called Cali Girl. I gave her a little yellow polka dot bikini and made the pages inside the notebook yellow too to match.

Colours from memory are I think:
Vintage Photo. Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Rasberry

The papers are various scraps of mostly older Maja design ones, and I made a little scene with some dies. I tried to keep stuff fairly flat as this was a notebook, and just finished off with a few enamel dots and a couple of Make it Crafty's fabulous chipboard words.  I inked the bottom and top pieces of chipboard in 2 different colour pink inks. The top one has a shimmery sheen to it.

I love how simple the Cinch made this to do and I will definitely be making some more in the future!

Bye for now,
