Altered Notebook

Hi Everyone~ I decided to do something different and alter a notebook. I haven't altered a notebook for a while now so I decided to work on. All I did was adhere the CTMH "Silhouette" Level 2 paper on to the bottom half of the notebook. The notebook already had a pretty print on it but it wouldn't be "my" work if I didn't cover it up a little. To finish up the notebook, I added the ribbons and the prima flowers. It took about 20 minutes to complete the notebook.
Nothing much else to this simple project! I don't have much to say today. . .I have to cook dinner in a few minutes so I just want to finish up this post.
Hope y'all are having a wonderful evening!

What a pretty, pretty notebook. I have a hard time altering journals. Thanks for the compliment on my tutorial. Peel-offs are new to me. They are in all the stores, yet we rarely see them being used. I noticed your daily list. Why is it you are always cleaning out your garage. It must be a monsterous size because you're always lost in there--LOL.

Classy! Love the black & white with that hit of red and the ribbons are so pretty. The way you have everything laid out would be perfect for a card too. You are SO good at placing elements. (It's my least favourite part of cardmaking so I am always in awe!) :0)

LOL!!! It is definitely "your" work now, sister. I love the color combo. I have a bunch of notebooks that are calling my name..... I always buy these things, and then put them in the corner til' I'm in the mood. Hopefully, I'll be more in the mood since I'm not with TAC anymore.

Very pretty! I did one to put all my birthdays in, this way I won't miss anyone's birthday!
