Designs for Notebook Competition

I have been working on some designs for the Tigerprint competition to design the cover of a notebook, and above are the designs.

I have used words to describe what us ladies love & like to do, highlighting in pink the letters to make up the word 'NOTES'.

I envisaged the notebook to be hardback, with a coordinated elastic or ribbon tie to help hold those little pieces of paper we tend to accumulate inside (either around the middle of the notebook or on the side). The inside cover of the notebook would have the pattern faded through, and perhaps as a background on the notepaper too. Maybe have a section of lined and a section of plain paper, divided by a ribbon; and perhaps a section entitled 'TO DO' that could have a colour tab on the edge of the page.
