In the meantime, here's the notebook I made for the new Double Dutch challenge (anything but a card) and a card I made a few weeks ago for a swap (someone sent me paper and embellishments and I had to make a card with it and send it back).
This is Studious Sally, a real smarty pants who skips grades like most girls skip rope ;o) She is 13 years old and starting university in September! Sally is as organized about her life as she is about her studies, and she's already bought all her books, notepads, pencils and everything else she'll need in September... She also always carries around a ruler, pencil, sketchbook and brush, for she is a great artist too and likes to wander round the woods and meadows, sketching the wildlife. Oh, to be that young and accomplished...let's hope she doesn't forget to enjoy normal teenage life every once in a while ;o)
Have you met Sonya yet? With her sled she helps out those who need her most: people struggling home through the snow with bags full of shopping, kids who are so poor they don't have sleds but do like to play outside in the snow, ski-ers who've broken a limb and need to get down off the mountain: Sonya's always there! I don't know how she does it, but she's a miracle worker ;o)

That's it for now, gotta run, Desperate Housewives is on in a minute! Be back tomorrow with the second story and material list ;o) (oh, to be hooked on TV shows ;o))
