Anything But A Card.......

Morning Blogger's.................Kerrie got to pick our Roses Challenge for June and she asked for anything but a card and she wanted some flowers.
Now I got a sneak peek at Olga's project and I have to tell you it's pretty amazing ......you'll want to check it out.
For me.......well I left it a bit last minute this month ...... sorry Kerrie!  Though saying this I have a little project to share and some info that some of you might enjoy.........though you'll need to be quick!!!!



Here's a cute little notebook and pen set I picked up for $1 . It measures 3.5 x 4.5 inches so perfect for your handbag or just to keep by the computer.  I wasn't that impressed with the front page but a scrap of Webster's Pages and a little stamped label made a big difference.  The flower, while not a great idea for a handbag note pad made it perfect for the challenge.

Last night I opened a Jessica Sprague email and read about her 4th Birthday Blog Hop. Anyone who enjoys digital scrapbooking would love this hop. 47 of her fabulous designing friends each share a project or layout for FREE download. Now I'd love to get into digital scrapbooking .....one day! so enjoy looking through checking out all the possibilities.   Well I found this little gift bag designed ready to print and cut designed by Monica Lifferth (stop no 38....how clever without going all the way back through the hop I can't link directly to Monica's Blog! Sorry I have tried to find her through Google.....if anyone knows let me know so I can make it right....please).  It was just perfect to pop the little notebook into.
I added some ribbon for added dimension only and used a little yo-yo flower pegged to close the bag.  



So there you have it, another month of challenges completed, thanks Kerrie for something a bit different. I'm off to check see if any of the other entries are up yet............you know the links are at the top of my page ...... under Roses **wink**.

Hope you're all enjoying a great week end with plenty of sunshine!  The weatherman says it's going to reach 21c degrees today in Sydney.........hope he's right!

Till next time.......

What a great notebook and pen project! I'm with you -- sometimes the original covers can be pretty lame but isn't it neat that we can change them with a bit of paper and embellies!
