Irish Dance Records

Hi Everyone

I have two books to share with you today.  
I was asked by a friend who has two daughters that both do Irish Dancing to make them a record book each.  They both do extremely well in competitions and she wants to keep a record of their wins etc and add photos to it so that they have something to keep when they are older.
I found the Irish Dancer image at The Stamping Boutique and she is called St Patrick's Day Audrey.  My friend sent me a photo of her daugter's in their costumes so that I could base the colours on it as I didn't have a clue lol!  I coloured them using ProMarkers.
 These books are both A5 in size and cut from 2mm board.  They have acid free white blank pages in them for adding all the info!
 I covered the covers with a Forest Green Card.  The Patterned Paper on the first book is from the Back to Nature Paper Pad and the spotty paper on the second book is from Scrap and Craft.  I printed the titles out on the PC.  I cut 4 leaf clovers using my Bebunni Die and added an Irish Dancer Charm to the top hinge. The second book has some green trim on it and clear green gems.  The first one I finished off with clear green flower gems.
I would like to enter this books into the following Challenges 
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Music
