I found this cute little, fat notebook in the back-to-school section. It didn't have the retro composition pattern cover so I created one digitally, printed it out and covered the base of my notebook with it. All the dies are from My Favorite Things. I'm thinking this notebook will be my place for taking notes on color combos as well as keeping tracks of refills I have and ones I need as time goes by.
I am really enjoying coloring with my Spectrum Noirs and since I was lucky enough to win a random draw on one of the challenges I've even been able to expand my set. I'm definitely planning to put the colors I'm still missing on my Christmas list for Santa.
P.S. — OWH is having a Virtual Card Making Party this Labor Day weekend so if you're around and want to join in some fun crafting challenges be sure to visit the Stars & Stamps blog starting tomorrow.
