Each day we will be sharing a brand new list of blogs with brand new projects for you to explore,

Now.....the Holiday's are ALL ABOUT MAKING LISTS (Santa's not the only one you know!!)
so I created this HANDY DANDY....
HOLIDAY NOTE PAD!!
(need some organization in all this chaos!!)


I began with a piece of Zutter Corrugated Board which I cut to size.
I then peeled off the top layer and lathered on multiple layers of paint.
I then pulled out some Beautiful Christmas papers by
Reminisce ~ A Christmas Story and Dear Santa
and a Gorgeous Velvet Poinsettia by Petaloo!
 
I cut a "spindly flower" from a piece of the SOOOON to be released
Frosted Plastic
and added a bit of Stickles for Bling!
  

I wanted to divided my Note Book into sections and I did so with edged pages of the
Frosted Plastic which I then embellished with Reminisce Stickers.



I then assembled my Note Book with the AMAZING Bind~it~All and some O~Wire!

Hope you've enjoyed my creation....
Don't forget to leave a comment before you hop onto your next blog!!!

 
Your Are Here>>>>>>>Lynne Forsythe

Happy Hopping!
