This weekend, I will be spending ample time with my four-year-old ballerina friend Solveig. I want to have plenty of fun creative things for us to do together, so I made this coloring book for her.

|Something personaized is always extra-special|
Everyone likes to "see their name in lights", so to speak! I included the recipient's name in some of the printed pages. It is a small detail and I know she will be delighted!
For a few of the pieces of art on the coloring pages, I tried different colored outlines instead of brown, just to punch things up a bit... and what young lady doesn't love pink and purple?
I covered the front and back covers, both inside and outside, with art prints I already had lying around. I picked out a few that I thought were just right for the recipient. I used Glue Stick to adhere the prints to chipboard covers. Then I pressed them into place with my trusty bone-folder. It was easy as pie and makes such a nice addition to the book.
Let's hope she loves it. :D I'll report back!
