Inkspirational Challenge - Note.

Our first challenge for 2015 at Inkspirational and we have a fabulous new look , designed by Kylie, and a wonderful guest designer, Marika. 
The challenge is:

My project is a notebook which I made as a gift for my (grown up) niece.  I used Amy Tangerine 'Yes Please' papers, a Bind it All cover and I cut the page tabs, tags, pockets on my Silhouette cutting machine. 
Inside front 

I made a bookmark my die-cutting a camera in shrink plastic, colouring it, shrinking it and tying it onto twine. 

Inside back cover pocket

somewhere in the middle

The whole thing was bound with the Bind-it-All. 

I hope you will come over to Inkspirational and share your project using the word prompt - note. 

I'd like to enter:
