A way to show my thanks

I have a very good friend called Kath.  I met her 18 months ago through a card making class.
She is such a great friend who is always there to lend an ear and she drive's when we go on our craft road trips as I am unable to drive.  Nothings every too much for trouble for her.
When I saw the challenge on Stamptacular challenging you to make a card for a friend I decided to go one better and make a gift for Kath.  I sometimes go over to her house to help her out with her cricut and she has notes on lots of different paper's so I decided to alter a note book for her and to use one of her favourite digi stamp company Teddy Bo.
I am entering the notebook into the following challenges :
Stamp with fun - great sketch guys thanks
Teddy Bo - alter something
Stamptacular - friends are heaven sent
Paper Sundae's - clouds and sky
Do it with digi's - summer fun
Stamp Something - summer fun
Crafts 4 eternity - anything but a card

I began by buying a 99pence note book and then removed the cover. The Image was printed and then coloured with copic's.  I added glamour dust glitter to her bubbles an her pom pom of her hat.  The clouds are done with a cloud template and distress ink.
The three dotty papers are all Bo Bunny double dot.  The bubbles BP is by magnolia and possibly my favourite BP of all time.  The ribbon was ruffled by sticking parts of the ribbon with DST.  The pink raffia lace is by the paper cellar.
The notebook die cut is by Shery K designs and was cut on my cricut.  She has some brilliant svg files on her blog for free.  And finally the letters were also cut on my cricut.
TBH I don't want to let this notebook go but I feel like that with all my Teddy Bo makes.
I hope Kath likes it when she returns from her holiday,
