Stationery notebook from scratch with Graphic 45 papers

Front cover
Back cover
Here's a stationery notebook I've made from scratch with Graphic 45 papers, from A Portrait of Lady collection. I've made it for a good friend of mine, a co-worker, who just retiered from work.
The basis for the cover was made out of cereal boxes, covered with black cs, and decorated with these beatiful feminine papers.
The closer is with a magnet, and I added some die-cuts made with my big shot. I wanted the cover to remain flat, so it will be easy to put it into the nandbag without damaging it.
In the inside, I made a pocket for notes, with a mini calendar on it, plus a stick-it notes holder and a place for a writing pad.

Here are some close-ups:

I would like to enter it to the challenge at Mini Album Makers
