Great concept. This is a great option for the not-so-girly girl.

I like the "science notebook" feel of this! I am not sure about is the font choice for the word bowling, it's looking a little out of place to me. I think the & is a touch large as my eye keeps going back to it and not the other fun elements, if that makes sense?

thank you Ashley for your feedback! i will scale down the overpowering "&" and try out other fonts for "bowling" later tonight. i have learned from this that typography is not easy!

I like your idea and the illustrations! :) I think the bottom line should be kept within your margins.
