Altered Notebook (Artful Delight)

Good morning friends! It's time for me to share my first project of the month using the October kit from Artful Delight. I'm part of a Senior Buddy program where I'm paired up with an older, homebound lady and I send her cards each week and occasionally send her little goodies. I saw a cute notebook at Michaels a couple of weeks ago and knew it would be perfect to alter for her so I grabbed it up!

Supplies Used From The Artful Delight October Kit: Pink Paislee Nantucket Paper - Clam Bake; Melissa Frances Newstand Medium Frame Resin Embellishment; Felt Rolled Roses (Created by Leeanne)
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream Cardstock; Tim Holtz Ink - Walnut Stain; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Adirondack Paint Dabber - Espresso; Papertrey Ink Stamp Set - Happy Trails; Martha Stewart Butterfly Punches; American Crafts Jewelry Box Thickers; Brown Washi Tape; Recollections Pearls; Recollections Mulberry Paper Rose Leaves (From the September AD Kit)

Is that great or what? I'm loving how it turned out and I can't wait to send it to her this week. I really hope it brightens her day every time she uses it. :)

So have you gotten an October kit for yourself yet? If not, what are you waiting for? It's totally packed with yumminess that you're sure to love so go for it!


I'm entering this project in the following challenges...
Wee Memories - Favorite Technique (Punches)
