Girly Notebook

I have a little bit of time toay, so thought I would share an altered notebook I made for one of my daughters.  I think the images in this newer Anya set are perfect for tween girls and can definitely see my daughter reaching for this set when making cards for her friends.

One thing I learned when making this, is that it really is very time consuming (at least it was for me) to take the covers off the spiral, put the DP on the covers (both inside and out), punch the holes and then put them back on the spiral.  Note to self....leave the spiral area DP free.......or maybe I just need a binding machine and then I don't have to worry about it ;)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - "Glitter, Glamour, Girlie"
Ooh La La Creations - "Remember, Remember"
The Crafty Pad - "At least one circle (hope the circle pearls count) and 2 ribbons"
Stamptacular - I picked Carolyn's Recipe book, but since I don't have an appropriate book to alter for this (or a binding machine to make one) I chose a notebook instead
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - "Use Glitter"

Crafty Sentiments - "Make a Gift"
Meljen's - Use 3 different shapes (Recangle, Scalloped Oval, Flower)
Raise the Bar - "Let's See Those Curves" (scalloped oval, word window punch, border punch, flowers, ric-rac trim)
Copic Creations - "Browns" - hair and boots 

Now, I did have my recipe written down, but I'm afraid I may have accidently thrown it away, so I am going by memory here..... 

Recipe ~ all items SU unless indicated
Stamps: Lounge Time Anya & Sentiment (The Greeting Farm)
Ink/Coloring: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics (E00, E01, E11, R20......and others)
Paper: Cool Caribbean; Gina K Luxury White; DP -We R Memory Keepers
Embellishments: Ric Rac trim; Organdy Ribbon (Offray); Flowers (Prima); Pearls-colored with copics (Recollections); Sickles (Stardust)
Tools: Scallop Oval Punch; Word Window Punch; Border Punch (Martha Stewart); Notebook (Michael's)

Have a wonderful day!

I think the pearls being a circle are stretching it a bit,lol but they are round, eh? It's a lovely card. I really like your colours. Thanks for taking part at The Crafty Pad this week.
