Things I Must Remember Not To Forget...

Good afternoon...

Well, this is fun, today I have made something just because I wanted to!  

How often does that happen? 
hmmm...not very often...! 
Well given the lovely time I have had doing this, it should certainly happen more often!
I have used the super duper digi from Tiddly Inks, A+ Avenger which I have coloured with Copics.

I have mounted the image using some papers from my stash which I have die cut and turned into the cover for a little notebook.

I added a sentiment of my own made on the computer with the font 'noteworthy'.  I also painted on a touch of Diamond Stickles to add some bling to this super hero's dress and goggles.  

Finally I added a touch of ribbon and twine and some coloured paperclips - just to complete that 'back to school' feel.

...and here we are, ready to take on the world, a super hero!
I would like to enter this project for the following challenges -
Tiddly Inks - Challenge #165 School Rules
As You Like It - Favourite Die 
and Why...
I have used my Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds Dies for this notebook.  (Great value - it's a pack of three).  I have had these dies for about two months and they have become my tip top favourite, most used EVER die!  Thing is, - yes, it looks like puffy clouds but it is also a wonderful way of creating a border and adding lots of scrummy papers.  Turned out to be a very good investment indeed for me given the number dies I have which are only used once or never!

I love your super little notebook cover Sue, a great image to use, we are often likened to super women with the many things we juggle at the same time in our roles as wife/mothers. A great sentiment to accompany it too and I hope it proves useful in your quest to remember everything :)

Lorraine said...

It's perfect Sue, I do love using my Zutter too, and really should get it out more often. That cloud die is lovely too, I really love the stitched effect. I can see why it is a favourite.

What a 'super' notebook - ha ha! Great fun image and sentiment...I have to write EVERYTHING down otherwise I forget it! The cute paperclip and ribbon details are just fabulous, and all so beautifully co-ordinated too.

I'm glad you found time to make something just for fun; I am the same and don't often have tome for it, but it's soooo nice when I do get time.

Big hugs, Kat xx
