First Sketch of 2017 with Die Cuttin' Divas

Happy New Year to all of the Die Cuttin' Divas out there. It is time for our first challenge of the year and of course as it is the first Tuesday of the year it is also our first sketch challenge of the year. Come play along with us this week and all year.
For this sketch I decided to create a new notebook for my crafting room. I keep all sorts of notes in my book while creating to get measurements right or sketch out ideas.
I covered a simple composition notebook a with a fun polka dot paper. I even added a little pocket on the front cover in order to side simple photo or notes as needed. (this is the full sheet of paper I used so I have a secret inside pattern)
I found the sentiment stamp and I really wanted to use it on this so I found a pocket cut to work with and got to work selecting my papers to complete the sketch.
I am super happy with the turn out and am already filling the notebook up with ideas and plans for upcoming projects. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas. Thanks for stopping in.
