inspire me funky

I wanted to make a notebook for sketches, tips, clippings and ideas. I found this one with grid paper in it at Office Depot. I love the grid paper for sketches.

I decided to put a big ol' honkin' flower on the front using my Pick A Petal set from SU! I love the Basic Grey Blush paper, I thought it turned out pretty funky!

I had the notebook done and ready for the sentiment in the bottom corner, I was going to use the standard 'create', had it stamped, punched and ready to go. Later in the day I was blog hopping and went to Nichole Heady's blog (have you seen her new studio pic's? OMW!) and she had linked to Jeanette's blog. I was drooling over her pic's and saw "Inspire Me" on a wall, PERFECT, love that! So, I went with "inspire me" for my sentiment on my notebook, I thought it worked!

Supplies: grid paper notebook, May Arts ribbon from StarLitStudio, Basic Grey Blush paper, vanilla cardstock, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip classic ink, walnut ink, small copper flower brads by Making Memories, corner punch, 1/16" punch, corner rounder punch, small scalloped punch, scalloped scissors, sponge dauber, SU!'s little flower stamp from the Big Bold Birthday set, Pick A Petal set, and the swirly stamp from Baroque Motifs, metal book corners and setter, red button and E6000.

I'm headed to my mom's at Mtn.View, my niece Tracy from Springfield, MO. is there and Crystal and the girls, I'm sure we'll find some girly things to do!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Boyyyyy, I just love it when you find something to "drool" over ... then decide that you "need" to do something of your own! WOW! Every time ... WOW!! Love this direction for you!

Oh, Pam! This notebook is great! It totally puts the one I did last night to shame. I stocked up on composition books at Target, so now I have to make one like this!
