Altered Notebook...

I'm taking a break from pricing yard sale items. The big yard sale starts tomorrow. You need something, we have it!! LOL! We will probably have one more before the final move...I have to weed out some of this stuff we've accumulated these past 11 years. At least it will be a break from packing. :o)

I took a a few hours today to finish up a package for my little Isabel. I've had such fun writing & sharing with her this year. I am going to miss her terribly, but her teacher will keep me updated on her. I hope to be a God-Auntie again next year. :o)

This is an altered notebook I made for Isabel. I saw a little journal that CindyG shared in the Sweet Shoppe Designs gallery. I thought it was such a cute idea, that I decided to make Isabel one for her to write about her summer. I used a digikit from SweetShoppe, it is Raggedy Annie by Robin Carlton, Kay Miller, & Mandabean. I loved the colors & elements in this kit. The butterfly on the front is layered, I used Stardust pens to glitter it some, & American Crafts ribbon.




Sorry for the icky photos...I put this together on the porch & thought I could get some good photos in the sun. Not the best idea!! :o(

Time for me to get back to pricing. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.


Hugs & blessings...

Good luck with the yard sale, I hope you sell everything within the first 2 hours! lol

I would love to sit in the yard and visit with you while you work the crowd! :)

It is such nasty weather here I hope yours is much better!

This is a great idea - I have been looking for ideas for altered notebooks - I'll have to make one for my Doodlebug for her to record the details of her summer!
