Pencil Sketchbook

I think I went a little overboard with my doodling on the cover of my new and made I proudly add {handmade} Pencil Sketchbook ;-)  I first stamped our Kitty Kat Marci (available HERE) and then doodled the rest of the "scene".  Everything was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and I had oodles (pun very much intended!!) of FUN!!  I don't even think I am done yet as I can see some empty spaces there, hahaha!! 

The front of my Sketchbook is a very heavy chipboard, so this book is nice and sturdy!  I used my new Cinch Machine to bind my Sketchbook.  Let me tell you, I LOOOVE it - so MUCH better than Bind-It-All.  Really!! 

I am going to make these blank Sketchbooks for everyone at my Coloring with Prismacolor Pencils WORKSHOP.  These Sketchbooks measure 6 1/4" x 4 3/4" and include FOUR different types of paper - 34 pages altogether!!  I really-really-really, did I say REALLY(!!) LOVE coloring in the Sketchbooks - you can take it anywhere with you and it is so nice to have something for the color reference and especially to see your progress in coloring.
