Notebook for Me!!!

It has been a while since my last post, but I have been working on something. I bought a notebook at Micheals for a dollar and I wanted to alter it for myself. The last couple I made (actually the first two) I gave to my girls. You can see them Here

I recently have gotten the Tattered Flowers Die, from Tim Holtz and I have had some Grungeboard sheets forever!!! I have seen some people make the flower and I wanted to give it a go. I made it and I really do like how it came out but I think it was to bulky to go on the cover of the book. So, I will put that one on another project. I already have an idea what I will use it on. I'll post a pic once I am done, in the meanitme, I went ahead and made two flowers out of paper that I stamped and embosssed.

I am excited about how this came out, I sewed on this project, a firt time thing for me. I do not have a sewing machine, so every stitch is hand stitched not to mention poking all the holes! HA HA. I am gonna use this for a place to keep my ideas about being creative. Weather that means a Card sketch, an interesting color combo, a project that I want to try. Who knows when I will be able to craft as I just recieved my letter inviting me to start the nursing program in the Fall. I hope that I will continue to find time to stamp and be creative while I am learning!
