Makeup for the Weekend: Altered Notebooks!

It's another Friday which means it's time for another Makeup for the Weekend Challenge over on the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog! This week's challenge comes from Makeup Artist Dawn Barrett and is super easy! Just do up an ALTERED NOTEBOOK! I always forget how easy this really is and had fun putting mine together.

This is a small 5 1/2" x 4 1/8" notebook. This is my favorite size to alter because it's almost the same measurements as a standard card so I can put one together without too much trouble. I've been in an Old Olive and Chocolate Chip mood, so it was easy to choose my colors. I decided to throw in my new love Summer Sun into the mix. I am sooo bummed this color is being retired! I already bought myself an ink pad and pack of paper to make sure I still have it once it's officially retired! (Boohoo!!)

I pulled out one of my rarely inked up, though very fantastic, Paper Makeup Stamp sets, Nature's Song for this notebook. The bird and the sentiment just seemed to match the feel of the notebook. I used my Lg. Oval Nestabilities for the sentiment. I added all my ribbon (a GREAT way to use it up!) and did my doodledots around the edge. The last thing I did was add a bit of bling by adding Stickles (Diamond and Stardust) to the flowers on the designer paper. It added just the touch I was looking for!

The layout for the notebook is this week's Sketch Challenge (SC281) on Splitcoast Stampers which was a perfect choice for my project!
