When I came across these neutral notebooks at Target, my home away from home, I knew I wanted to create a modern design for them.

My kids were very excited to start a fire (which I have never done on my own before but had to this time because my hubby wasn’t with us!) and roast marshmallows for some delicious S’mores. Of course, I had my camera with me and had to take a few pictures.  (I must say, I…
