  95. I\'ll share this with my loves

  96. I\'ll share this with my loves, my kids I call them JK and lil doll and they call me mami

  101. It\'s an adventure into the unknown of two ladies passionately in love with the art of doodling and drawing: Zozomo and Ting-a-ling go on an adventure. \r\n\r\nWe just sat by the river yesterday discussing our next trip to India. Some people are born not to belong anywhere. We suppose we\'re one of them, embarking on journeys to invent our own place of belonging.

  102. I would share this book with my best friend in the entire world, Fel. In just twelve days he\'s leaving to Australia for a year and I\'ll be leaving to Spain. I would doodle and mail him the book so that he could doodle and mail it back to me every week for a whole year until we met again.\r\nI want to win this book to prove that distance is no obstacle when imagination is on your side.\r\nAs for nicknames, I call him Fel and he calls me \'Hippo\' because he thought comparing me to a hippopotamus was a flattering gesture on his part and indeed it was, he won my heart.

  103. I\'d share this with my best friend Grobi, we have been friends for over 11 years and went through a lot of shit together. He usually calls me Arielle :D x

  104. Without a doubt: I\'d share this awesome book with my mom - my best friend.\r\n\r\nA few years ago when I was having a hard time at uni and feeling really homesick, she sent me a copy of \'The Scribble Diary\' with a note telling me how proud she is of me. Totally inspired me to keep going. It would be so amazing to surprise her with \'You, Me, Us\' when I see her in 2 months (for the first time in over a year!).\r\n\r\nWe have many wacky nicknames for each other, but she usually calls me \'Poppie\' (Afrikaans for \'little doll\') or \'Skatty\' (Afrikaans for \'precious\'). I call her \'Benny\' - like Benjamin Button - to tease her about her forgetful nature. Some days we\'re \'Big Benny\' and \'Little Benny\' - as we\'ve both got our head in the clouds or done something silly. She may be 65, but my mom has the fun, playful nature of a 25 year old.

  105. I\'d share this with my brother . He is 15 years old and my partner in crime . He calls me Aboorty , and I call him Hamani

  107. I share it with my daughter Elisa in a few days will be 10 years. I like call her \"Trottolina\" and she often calls me \"Mamy\" !!!

  108. I\'d share it with my niece, she\'s super fun & crazy, and loves doodling even more than I do! I call her \"Melenas\" and she calls me \"Tagú\"

  110. I would like to share this book with my friend, Kirsten Zinger.\r\nShe\'s like one of my best friends since I\'ve met her at a camp for our study.\r\nSince we also LOVE to doodle, I think this book would be an awesome addition to our friendship and our creativity.

  111. Would share this gem with my friend Jay. Jay actually is his nickname, since his initials are JJJ. He calls me keeks, not sure why but it just happend. I\'ve only known him for a year, but he managed to rapidly become one of my best friends. We share our sketches and doodle with eachother. Would be awesome to work on this book!

  112. I would share this book with my boyfriend, his nickname is otter, because sometimes he is lazy and he spend all day dreaming with everything in your own world. He calls me \"PinkPanda\" because sometimes I look like a sweet and funny panda with a pink dress.

  113. i just sign up only to get the book! coz i really wanna share it with my best friend Samah , she call me Mena and i call her Smsm . :)

  114. I\'d love to share this book with my two best friends with whom I have a farewell this coming Friday. I wil travel to Spain. Old nicknames are funier than new ones, they used to call me pichu now they call me yuyu due to my name. I used to call them: pocke and maldito rockerito, their names are Monica and Marcela.

  115. My sister Kym who I call Kymmie & she calls me butt head. Our love of drawing came after our dad past away 14 years ago next week. Its our special time when we tangle

  116. I will share this book with my best friend, Desty, but she\'s like to be called \"Boy\" as in AstroBoy, and she called me Jaw (just like the shark) when really, it\'s short for \"Jawi\" means \'cow\' in traditional Indonesian language.\r\n\r\nWe\'re often almost bought cool doodle books but never actually made it cause the international shipping problem to our place is always the reason (talking about \'other side of the world\' haha)\r\n\r\noh and anyway, she actually a big fan of my doodle but never admitted it haha. I figured it out myself.

  117. If I win this book, I would share with my co-worker Francisco Ramirez

  118. I would share with my daugther. Her name is Valentina and i call her Tini while she calls me mom. :D

  121. I would share it with Roland, aka Rollie Pollie, aka My Love. He would respond by saying \"You found a new \'we\' book!\" -- we just finished a different one -- \"Thanks Darling, aka My Love, aka The Murph!\" He would tilt his head slightly while directing at me an assertively affectionate gaze before wrapping me up in his arms.

  122. I would share this with my polar opposite love of my life John. I doodle on everything and he organizes them into neat collections in order for him not to go insane with the randomness of my brain and mess. With 3 small children, two of whom are already following in my footsteps (got to start them young) it would be amazing to show them this book filled out by us in 20 yrs and see their reactions.

  123. I solemnly swear to share this book with my boyfriend who is also my best friend who is also the love of my life (if I win it or somehow manage to get it) He calls me bubblebutt, all the other lovey dovey nick names and I call him all those lovey dovey nicknames as well and also pooptaco :D \r\nYAY FOR DOODLES

  125. First of all, love this: Concept, design, everything. Secondly, I would love to share this with my grandmother. Her memory is beginning to noticeably decline and I\'d love to make this keepsake with her. It would help her, therapeutically and spiritually, as much as it would help me (and surely many others!) Thirdly, nicknames.... I call her dollface. She calls me Charlie Brown. We are best friends and I can\'t imagine life without her!

  126. I\'d definitely share this with my best friend. We\'re inseparable, to say the least. And we call each other a variety of nicknames. Ranging from dork/loser, to girlie and sweet cheeks
