Weekly Blogger's Challenge #7






Being gone the past two weeks at Convention, I've missed doing the weekly Blogger's Challenge. Today's challenge was to Alter something. I love to alter things, so the hardest part for me was narrowing down what I would show you! lol! Here is my Challenge...an altered Notebook. I love to jot down thoughts, colors and ideas as I have them and they usually end up on little post-it notes all over the place. I guess this will be my creative journal and everything will be in one spot. I found a simple notebook at Big Lots that has lots of pages. The harlequin pattern was cute, but I knew I could do better! lol!

No stamping on this, but one of my most FAVORITE Stampin' Up! designer papers is Cutie Pie, so I had to pull it out and use it. I'm already close to breaking out my second pack of this paper. I think it is the colors (and flowers) that appeal to me so much! It just makes me smile. The center of the flower has a little glitter bling and love that double-stitched ribbon. It needed a little ribbon on the spiral binding, too! The back is also covered with the flower paper. I debated whether or not to put some words on it, but decided not. Enjoy!

Check out the other fantastic blogger's on my list and how they met the challenge!
