Paper Playtime Ch#80 ~ Anything Goes Altered Notebook

Good Monday morning.  I hope this finds y'all well and that you had a wonderful weekend.  It is the 5th Monday of the month and when we are blessed with one there is always a one week challenge at Paper Playtime "Anything Goes".  For these challenges I try to create something other than a card just for a change. 

For those of you that do not know this about me, I am a list maker ~ I make "To Do" lists, grocery lists, lists of cards I need, lists of design team commitments, and so on and so on......Because I always have a list on the go I try to make them all in one spot so that I can access them easily.  When I first started paper crafting I made myself an altered notebook to put all my lists in one place.  Yesterday I used the last page in that notebook. The first list or note in it is from 2007 ~ it lasted me five years. Here is a pic of it:

So I needed a new notebook for my notes and lists.  I had picked up a notebook on sale at Indigo book store a while back for this purpose and just got around to altering it. Very different style than my last one. It just shows how my style and my supplies have evolved.

A close up of the image:


Paper, ribbons, fibers and flowers all from
my "Use It Up" Inventory
Image ~ Sassy Studio Designs
"Denim Debbie" (A Friday freebie)
Copic markers
Spellbinders ~ Nestabilities Labels Nine
Gypsy and Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge for "Notes"

I have put my first list in this book and am looking forward to using it for a while now. 

Thanks for coming by today.  Don't forget to join us this week at Paper Playtime for our "Anything Goes" challenge.  Take care, my friends.
