comments from Tina:

This colorful and whimsical journal is perfect for the mom that has tons of to-do-lists and a busy schedule to keep track of! She needs a cover that salutes her - and a perfect little reminder at the bottom row ;-)

Elaine, thanks for pointing out the misspelled word. I get so hung up in colors and shapes only last night. I wanted this graphical statement to stand on its own, that is why I didn´t leave any room for personal names... However, I did add that touch on the other covers I added to the challenge. Cheers! :-)

The colors are awesome on this one, and I know more than a few moms that would love to carry this around! Nice work, Tina!

Neat copy! Have you thought of possibly using different fonts for the different words like wife/nanny/chef/etc. ? It may be just at the right balance as is, just an idea!

Thanks, guys! Natalie: I thought of using different fonts, but thought that it became too graphical ( you mention balance...). For this cover I wanted the message to stand out! :-)

love the colors! Maybe the place where 'mom' is could be a slightly bigger box in case someone wants to write their full name in there? Also at the bottom, i think you meant 'known' :)
