12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

Hello and welcome back to day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Smeared and Smudged style.  I have to warn you, this is NOT what would expect, but since the theme was expanded to include gift items, here we go.
A couple of years ago Alex made a Zombie Escape Plan notebook for her oldest son.  He writes in it occasionally, and has enjoyed having it.  You know teenage boys (throw rocks at them).  Alex decided to make another one, especially since she now has the Zombie stamp set from Smeared Ink.  This set is certainly a fun one with mix and match heads and rotting body parts.

This is the front cover complete with bloody smears.
 The back cover with the bloody hand print included.
 A sampling of the inside pages.  The majority of them are blank so that the owner of the notebook can write the details of their own escape plan.  However, it does include some things Alex thought would be helpful information such as:

Maps

 Diagrams
 Things NOT to said to Zombies (such as How's it hanging?)
 Photos of what you might expect to see during a Zombie attack.
 and of course, how to identify a Zombie.
The pages of the notebook measure 4x 5 inches and the cover is 4.5 x 6 inches.  I hope you enjoy it as much as Alex enjoyed making it.  Hearing her manical giggling Wednesday while creating this was just about more than this bird could take.  Crazy lady.....

Challenges:
Macabre Monday HDH067 - Paper Pandemonium -we are counting the maps and photos as two different patterned papers.

Happy Holidays!
Edgar

I so need one of these! HEHE love it, but like Alex my giggling while making it might tip off the kiddo. Love the cardboard cover and the photos and diagrams I'm sure will be a big help while planning an escape.

TFS Edgar! Love any and all kind of journals. May have to borrow Alex's hints as I have a zombie hunter here too and you have to find some way to get him to write. Drawing, yes. Writing, no. Love it! Paula
