Posh and Polka Dots!

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I love making altered notebooks and wanted to design something with pink, black and polka dots.
Hope you like what I came up with.

I also heard about another great challenge blog called The Shabby Tea Room. Their design team work is beautiful. This week they are having a "Polka Dot Tea Party" challenge. I had to join in on the fun and submitted my "BFF Polka Dot" altered notebook. Check them out when you have time!

I also love the fun challenge going on at Pile it On this week.
There challenge is called - "Out of the Box"
I think my project qualifies so I wanted to join in on their challenge too.

To make this one I took an ordinary spiral notebook and decorated the cover with patterned paper, button embellishments, and sticker embellies from TPC Studio's Girlfriends collection. I also added different types of ribbon including pink tulle, black scrunchie ribbon, and pink spiral ribbon.

I decorated the inside pages with black polka dot border at the top and bottom of each page. On the very first page I also tied more pink spiral ribbon and added a polka dot button. This is a great gift idea to give to your BFF's!
