A few of my favorite things...

So, I have decided to post a project made with some of my recent favorites. An altered composition book using a tag and a paper flower. This was made as a birthday gift for my sister-in-law, Virginie. Walmart had composition books on sale for 25¢ for back-to-school. This was a very cost effective gift, but the recipient would never know that with how dressed up it looks.

Have a great day!
All supplies used to alter are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
Stamp Set: Artistic Etchings
Paper: Shimmer White Cardstock, Spring Silhouettes DSP (retired) and an old book (for the paper flower)
Ink: Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Baja Breeze Corduroy Button (retired), @ the office reinforcement label (on hole in tag), Pentel RSVP Pen and Composition Book

Busy in Mississippi...

Well, it's been a while since I posted on my blog. We left CA on June 24th and life has been crazy since then. I have had the chance to make a couple of things in the past few days and will post photos as soon as I can, hopefully tomorrow. In the meantime, here is a photo of me with my brothers and one of my sisters (plus Ian). My sister Angela was not able to make the canoe trip this year. I'm the one in the middle... NOT!

Have a great day.
