Pretty Little Notebook

Wooo-Whooo!  It's Friday.  Let me just say that I'm so ready for the weekend! Aren't you?
Anyway, I'm here to show you a little book I made.  It's a small book - measures 4.25 x 5.25 inches.  So, in essence it's a card sized notebook with about 20 total sheets of paper stitched in.  I really needed a list book to jot down things I need to remember.  And of course I wanted it stylish at the same time!
I've used the Crinkle Ribbon, Sunflower, from the Harvest Bundle.  Stamped it, added a little butterfly, and an antique dry cleaning pin with a super tiny tag!
The snapshot below highlights the spine where I stitched the book together.

Hope that this simple project gives you a bit of inspiration!
Have a great weekend!

My project is a fashionable tote to help a precious 'lil girl keep track of all her special items....those items that all little girls need on an incredible journey with her friends.

I think my daughter would have loved this when she was a little girl.  If it were larger, I think she would actually like it still!

I've used a muslin bag (8x10) from 3GirlJam that I decorated with some colorful fabric.  I fancied and sewed the bottom of the bag so that it would sit flat.  I really liked that extra feature!  I will definitely be using that technique over again.  I added the jumbo eyelets and included some colorful ribbon to fashion it as a little purse.  A sturdy little purse that would endure an outdoor adventure!

I've donned it front and center with a Pinque Peacock 1.5 Inch Fabric Cov…

I'm Hop Hop Hopping Again!

Good Morning everyone! Welcome to Part 2 of the 3GirlJam and Alley Way Stamps Cross Promotional Blog Hop!

So, if you started on the 3GirlJam Blog or the Challenge Blog, you saw only a little hint of my card.  Now you get to see it all!

If you just ventured onto my site (cuz you love me) you may not be aware of the blog hop going on.  You should start at the beginning and hop along!  You can...

If you're hopping along, then there you have it! My project exposed!  I have to say that I enjoyed everything about this project.  I enjoyed the challenge of the inspirational photo (see below), I LOVED the stamp set (Ooh La La - especially those LIPS!), and I loved the 3GirlJam ribbon I chose (Seasonal Bundle)

Did I say how much I loved those lips?

Here's the inspiration photo:

Okay, so there! By now, I'm sure you know what to do if you need to qualify for a prize!  So I won't keep you any longer!
