Composition Books

I am a paper addict. Seriously. I have a fascination with scrapbook paper... and I shouldn't because I really don't have any more room for any more stinking paper. LOL! So, I went to Joann's and they had the DCWV paper stacks on sale... and my friend's daughter had a birthday...inspiration!

I am going to enter this in the Wags and Whiskers Challenge "Pop it up". I didn't really want to use dimensionals on this since it will be used to write in so I added a flower. I hope that counts as a pop up. I also added small little "pops" on the back... read on.

I really like composition books. They are easy to cover, look really cool and are easy to personalize. I had bought small composition books at Target during the after school sale. They came in a little package 2 for $0.50. Of course, I bought a whole bunch. :-) I used some paper from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. Really cute glittery paper.

The Stamp is Wags and Whiskers Happy Day colored in Twinkling H2Os. So cute! I kind of freehand measured everything and added a ribbon I found from the dollar spot at Target to hold the pen. I put some of the same DP in the inside of the RSVP pen. Easy! The following is the back:

I cut my friends' daughter's name with my Cricut and added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the name.

The next one is the basically the same concept except I used the stamp Bedtime Story from Wags and Whiskers.

Of course, my son Gabriel (who is 9) is fascinated with any art projects. He's always painting, coloring, etc. He is dying to use my Twinkling H2Os... not sure if I'm ready for that yet. Anyway, he saw me making the composition books and wanted me to make one for him.

I used the High Hopes stamp Time Well Spent. He really likes this stamp because he says it looks like him and our chocolate lab fishing in the backyard. He wanted me to paint them with the Twinkling H2Os.
He wanted to write his own name on the back. OK. What could I say?
Anyway, thanks so much for looking!
