DSCN2868Hi Everyone! I am a self proclaimed, office supply junkie with an afflinity for paper and pens! (Hense my love of stamping I'm sure!) While I love my tech, I equally enjoy jotting things down in a cute notebook! Just makes me happy 🙂

I passed out notebooks at our previous team meeting with the 'challenge' for the Dolls to decorate them. Above is my Altered Notebook. I made the flowers using ribbon and the help of the Silicone Craft Sheet 127853 and hot glue.

DSCN2869Omgoodness….I so enjoy connecting with others around this hobby! One of the Desinger Paper Dolls is from Hawaii and she joined in the swap this month! I'll share our team mini album project in a later post after the other Designer Paper Dolls get a sneak peak. I got lots of new ideas from watching the other teammates decorating their project…that's the fun of crafting with others!

I love how this hobby connects me with new stampin' friends near and far! (click here to find out more about being part of fun.)

****Video coming soon on how to make the flowers!****

How to make the altered notebook – this book has a clear cover. The first page I covered using Basic Black card stock 121045 and First Edition Specialty Designer Paper 121878. The top clear cover was decorated with ribbon flowers and last year's Convention Stamp "I am…"

Being Fab! Inspirations for living a fabulous life."If it's to be, it's up to me!"
Have you ever found yourself living in a world of "ifs"? If only I had a different job. If only my husband would (fill in the blank). If only I was happier, skinner, younger, older, had more friends, less stress, etc…  If onlys thinking takes away the power that's in all of us! It makes us think we are powerless to change the situaion. One of best things someone told me when I was "If only-ing" was this saying her mother would tell her (moms are awesome!).If it's to be, it's up to me! It's full of empowerment for living a fabulous life!
