I received an awesome free craft kit from Shop Laura Kelly but all ideas and opinions are my own. During the summer, I like to do activities with my kids to keep them learning while having fun. When I was in middle school, my friend and I had a spiral bound notebook that we passed back and forth to each during the day in between classes instead of writing single notes. My daughter’s best friend forever (BFF) lives within walking distance of our house. I thought it would be fun if we went old school this summer and had Kara and her BFF write notes to each other in a BFF summer notebook.
I already had the BFF summer notebook idea when Kara and I looked through the crafts in Laura Kelly’s Shop. When I saw the button composition book journal kit, I knew it would be perfect for this project. We received the kit from Laura about a week later. Here are the contents of the kit. I love the hot pink that contrasts so well with the grays of the papers and the black of the composition notebook.
Kara sat down one night before dinner and created her BFF summer notebook in about 10 minutes. She designed and put it together on her own.
Everything she needed except scissors and a pencil was included in the button composition notebook kit.
Kara also added a photo of herself and her BFF. As a scrapbooker, I’m thrilled that she thought to personalize the notebook with a photo. Notice how perfect the words are on the gray paper for a BFF themed notebook.
I loved the convenience of having the button composition book shipped right to our door.

This is such a fun idea! Growing up my BFF lived just two houses down and I know we would have LOVED something like this. I bet the girls will have such a blast with it all summer, and also love it as a keepsake years from now!
How fun to grow up with your BFF so close Christine! My sister and I are very close in age so we were each other’s BFFs but didn’t know it. 🙂
Super sweet! Thanks for the giveaway!
You are welcome Malia! The girls are still passing the notebook to each other at least once a day. The other mom and I are thrilled that they love writing to each other so much.

Totally adorable! This kit looks like it was fun to put together and I love that it’s getting used constantly — can’t find a better testimonial than that! 🙂
Thanks Laura. My daughter had fun putting it together and is really enjoying passing it back and forth with her friend. I am glad she won’t miss out on the note passing fun of childhood. 🙂
What a cute idea and something they will treasure in the years to come. I’m going to check out Laura’s shop.
Thank you Lisa! I am hoping that the girls will fill it up before the summer is over.
