Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge



The inspiration for the challenge was from the following photo.

Well HELLO there !

Having had a VERY VERY  busy few weeks leading up to Christmas with last minute crafting for the craft fairs I am only getting back now to blogging. Thankfully all the hectic preparations and extra work for the fairs paid off and I raised 2002.30 euro for SVP Ireland (Dublin branch). A big sincere thank you to all my crafting buddies in Ireland for your support, motivation and encouragement.

I am back with this notebook cum desk note pad. I was shown this  idea of using an easel card on the top of the notebook by a crafting buddy. She had  learnt it at a card making class http://jackiesworkshops.blogspot.com/ here in Dublin. I adapted it to work on the long skinny notebooks as these are my favourite. For this sample I used my Tesco notebooks ( I just could n't open my little treasured set of  Papertrey Ink ones !)

I have prepared this project to partake in the Papertrey Ink April 2012 Blog Hop. I promised myself no matter what happened this week I was going to join in. I got inspiration for the top of the notebook from http://lilybeanpaperie.typepad.com/lilybeans_paperie/.  I hope you enjoy.

Papertrey Ink items used :   sentiment from Daydreamer Set and green felt.
Patterned papers from Flowergarden paper pad by Tilda, ribbons and lace from stash. Trinket pin made from fancy beads and long sewing pins.
