Birthday Dragon

My daughter's best friend has a birthday coming up soon and she wanted to do something special for her. Now her friend loves dragons, red, blue and any prints that are Chinese or Japanese related (she's a big Menga fan) and writing. So she asked me if I had anything that she could use to make her friend something for her. I found a fabulous dragon image from Floppy Latte that she knew her friend would go nuts over it. Then I let her loose in my papers....oh what fun she had! Once she knew the image and papers it was time to decide what to do with them. She decided that a journal would be just the thing to make for her. This is what we came up with (she coloured the image, picked all the papers and embellishments and I put it all together).

She coloured it with Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and I blended it with my oms. The mini roses are from Prisma and the leaves are an oak leaf punch and the vines is Savannah Border by Memory Box dies. The flowers under the mini roses were from my stash. The pearls on the vine are from Recollections and I used Star Dust stickles on the roses. The red and black ribbon was from my stash also. The red and blue cs is from Recollections, the small patterned dp is Boxer from Basic Grey and the other dp is Patchwork dots from g.c.d studios Chianti Collection.

As her girlfriend is not going to be around for her birthday, my dd gave it to her early...and she loved it! :D

Thanks for looking ~ Charlene and Kat
