Altered Notelet Book



The pretty notelet book before I started altering it


After I had finished



Hello my dears,  I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, the weather has been dire here, rain rain and more rain. Anyway I've spent the day revamping this little notelet book that I bought.

It was really pretty to start with but when I got it home and tried to take the sticker off the front of it all that was left was a real tacky gluey mess.  So I put my thinking cap on and altered it. I cut off the offending damaged piece,  got out my Pink Paislee freebie papers and went to work on it.

Once it had been recovered (front. back and inside) I picked out my stamps ( all Magnolia) I chose Ballerina Tilda from the Prince & Princesses collection,  Summer Flower Tilda from the Summer Memories collection and a Mini Tilda with Rose from the Crazy Love collection.  All were coloured with Copics.  I won't go into detail of all the other bits n bobs I've used but you can find a full list of ingredients with links where possible below this post.

This is going to a dear sweet (new) friend who is the most generous and unselfish person I've had the pleasure to meet and I'm delighted that we have become FRIENDS.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I do hope I've given you a little inspiration and that you'll come back and see me soon.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:
