Memories Notebook (Artful Delight)

Hello!! I'm sorry it's been a while since my last post but I have been crazy busy! I was able to find some time to create yesterday though and had some fun with the March kit from Artful Delight. :) The other day at Wal-Mart, I was looking for a small notebook for my purse to write notes/journaling ideas/etc in. I found one that was the perfect size but I wasn't all that crazy about the design, sooooooo, what's a scrapper to do? Alter it of course!!

Supplies Used From The Artful Delight March Kit: Little Yellow Bicycle Twig Paper - Petaled, Wood You Be Mine (Fern), Leaf A Note, Decorative Edge Cardstock; Basic Grey Marjolaine Felt Woolie; Twine

Other Supplies Used: Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Ali Edwards Stamp Set - Favorite Memories; EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch; Ranger Ink Glossy Accents; Recollections Pearls

I absolutely LOVE how cute this turned out to be, and the coolest part is that every time I go to write something down, I get to look at it again. Pretty awesome right?? ;) I also had some fun making my own flower using the twine from the kit and some Glossy Accents. It was SO easy to do and looks great! I can't wait to make some more of them.

So are you feeling inspired to alter your own little notebook? If you happen to, please share a link with me because I'd love to see it. :) Just a warning though...it's addictive, lol! Also, if you're thinking you might want to grab a March kit for yourself, do it quick because there's only 1 left in stock!

Just a note: I receive the Artful Delight monthly kit for free because I'm a DT member, but please be assured that my opinions are my own! Anything I say about these kits is how I truly feel. ;)
