The notebook

So it was a great movie and all though I have only seen it one and a half times lol it is not what is meant by the title, this post is all about notebooks and notpads.

This weeks PPS challenge is In the Pink! Jennifer suggested using pink bling in honor of Valentine's Day. Bonus points if you use them on a notebook or journal you create to highlight all those things you love (great idea Amy!) Try to challenge yourself by using a whimsy studio image, or a PPS valentines image. But if you don't have either please play along anyways! we'd love to see what you come up with.

Anyways, here is my contribution/sample for this weeks challenge.

This is just a standard composition book that I covered added a book marker ribbon to and decorated.
So here we are this pretty lady is wearing a chocolate brown dress blinged up with pink on her dress and earings. She is one of the new Valentines Digi images at Pink Papery Studios which is great because I was able to print her out as large as I needed for this project

I also scalloped the brown layer under the image (boy do i need to get nestabilities!!!lol PS it is a metalic brown cardstock so a little extra bling)
anyway, in each scallop there is a little pink bling
the heart she is holding is all glittered up!, and the hearts surrounding her are made with metalic pink and brown cardstocks

and to finish off the front I gave a little box to write in the name of the owner or maybe a little love note to the reciever, more metalic hearts layered, and of course more pink bling made into swirls (yeah they dont match great but i freehanded them)

and to finish off the insides I lined the inside with matching papers to the cover, and you can see the ribbon bookmark which is a different but matching ribbon to the one I used to disguise the seam on the cover, anyways a little journal box for a this book belongs to kind of thing or maybe if you put the name on the front this could be the little message to the reciever of the gift if you give it as a gift that is lol...and yes i know i need to do my nails lol

So this challenge was so much fun and I really hope you will join in. If you decided to participate you can place a comment on this post with a link to your project. and though this challenge doesnt have a prize, We will be hosting a challenge every week and from time to time we will throw in a chance to win candy so always watch out for our Pink Papery Studios weekly wednesday challenge!

Now I mentioned notpads too didn't I?!?! hmmmmm well they are not part of the challenge but I still wanted to show them off.

So target had teh sweetest little post it note pads in there seasonal bins one has a frog prince, one has XOXO, one has a conversation heart candy, and one has a cupcake how sweet!!! so I made little covers/books to keep them in with velcro closures so here they are. The 2 with stamped images are images from the greeting farm which I am madly in love with right now, I have only purchased the digi images so far, and no these weren't my stamps I got it in a swap but after seeing how cute they are I will be getting a set of my own now! =) and the 2 without stamped images features DCWV sweet stack papers. so cute!

and this notepad was also from target (featuring that frog prince i mentioned) but obviously a larger pad, so I made it a covered notpad...well semi covered lol I loved teh little frog so much that I had to keep him out, so the ribbon closure is attached to the back of the book and the front flap and ties everything nicely closed and to ad to the cuteness we had to add lots of flowers and hearts the larger layered flowers each have a heart shaped brad in the center and teh smaller flowers each have a little pink rhinestone bling in the middles don't you just love it!

So thats it for now and I hope you enjoyed, check back tomorrow for even more projects.
