Altered Notebook

Hi friends! I hope you all are having a great Thursday! We took a trip to CVS this morning and went to the grocery store. I'm kind of spent already. What can you do? The kids are happy at least.

Here's a notebook I made for an altered notebook contest over at The Greeting Farm blog. I didn't win but I still love my notebook so I decided to share with you. :) I don't alter things often. You know, I like the world
inside of my A2 box. But this was a fun one to make. I used a regular composition book. In retrospect, I would have picked on with a brown binding if I had to do this over again. I thought very briefly about painting the binding but I decided against it.

Also, I'm addicted to crinkled ribbon! It's SOOOO fabulous! I used it to make 4 looped bow here. I might need to get my own seam binding so I can make my own. I haven't done that yet.
Here's a close up so you can see the coloring on Flutter Anya. She's one of my very favorite stamps. I think she's pretty sweet. I covered the pink part of the wings with some Stickles.
