Duckie Enters A Challenge Contest

Thursday, April 8, 2010

I have been bitten by the "Challenge" bug lately! This week I created a fun twist to the every day notepad. 
I came up with this Spring Duckie altered notebook! Yellow is my favorite color so I had to incorporate it into the design.

I have entered this is the following challenges:

Our Creative Corner Challenge - "Break Out the Buttons"
Sisterhood of Crafters - "Recycled project celebrating Earth Day"
Quixotic Challenge #20 - "The Joys of Spring"

This altered notebook was so fun to make.  Instead of throwing away an old notebook - why not turn it into something new and cute for Spring!

I used the following materials:
♥ One 6" x 4" notebook  
♥ Designer scrapbook paper
♥ Soft orange ribbon for the bow
♥ Pre-printed white ribbon with orange flowers
♥ Yellow buttons
♥ Flower embellishments
♥ "Happy Go Lucky" text embellishment

I decorated the cover of the notebook only. The inside was already pre-printed with orange lines for note taking. This fits in well with the color scheme on the cover. To make one of these all you need is your favorite scrapbook paper, any size notebook, and your favorite embellishments and ribbon.

I think I will make a few more of these to give to my daughter's teachers as end of the year gifts!

Have a creative week!
