I became an avid reader at the age of seven, I really didn't have a choice, I was very ill in hospital and not allowed to roll over, sit up and getting out of bed was a thing to dream about in the coming months. So, I learnt to engross myself in the books. Some lovely ladies would bring around books to the children's ward for us to read and keep. Obviously a charity to which people donated books. They were a highlight of my stay as were the young policemen that would throw a party for the children in the hospital after their passing our parade.

I hove coloured the image with copic pens and fussy cut. Before printing, I added some of my favourite childhood book titles.
I have added some patterned paper from Stampin-up which is covered in words. Wooden letters make up the word Notes and three little candies in the corner and pearls down the side complete the notebook cover.
