These notebooks are so much fun to play with. I tried personalizing one for a neighbor girl. I don't have girls, so this was too much fun to work on. I was only going to put the ribbons at the top but soon realized they had to go all the way down. The name goes from the bottom of the notebook to the top. This is for a neighbor girl who comes over once in a while to play with my youngest. I'll be glad when he's over the whole "girls aren't cool" to play with thing.
