The Same But Different



So do you feel like you've seen this before??
You have. :-)
See below:


Sometimes you have a card or an image that you just love too much to give away and yet you don't want it to just sit in a drawer either. This is one of them.
I dissected my own card and made a notebook for myself.
I did add a bit of background color to the image:
And the close up of the binding which I covered with ribbons  (most from Sew Sweet)and charms from The charm barn.


The corner is Wild Orchid Crafts and the die is a nestie.
Studs are by recollection.


Challenges:
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - patterned paper
Top Tip Tuesday - Make it girlie
Try It On Tuesday  -  Alter something to give as a gift (does it count when you make it for yourself? lol)

Have a great day!

Totally adorable Dorcas, and the melon image from the day before too. I just love to do this to a boring old notebook, I have just made one for my friends Birthday, but cannot show it yet as she has a look on my blog now and then!!

Hi, I thought I had commented on this one, but I must have just looked at it and then closed the computer down. Beautiful journal. It is a shame that we hardly every make anything for ourselves. Now you won't ever want a plain one. Hugs, dj
