Hoot the Owl Notebook

Good morning Folks!

Thanks to everyone who joined us over at CRAFT for our blogoversary celebrations last week, don't forget to check my last post to see if you won a fab prize!!

Our new challenge this week is:


I really enjoy altering things and I had the perfect recent purchase in my stash which I picked up in wilkinsons a couple of weeks ago for about 40p. A lovely battleship grey hardbacked note book, not exactly inspiring....

but I have turned it into this:

I've used "Study Owl" from Meljens who are also our sponsors this time - you could be the lucky winner of 4 digi stamps

The backing paper is by Doodlebug and the stitched ribbon is from my stash. The dark brown textured ribbon for the corners is recycled from a posh box of chocs!!

Hope you like to transform things please try to join us at CRAFT this week!

I'd also like to enter the following challenges too:

Patties Creations designs: No, no, no cards
Polka Doodles: Anything but a card
Crafty Catz: Anything goes
2 sisters: Use a digi
Challenge up your life : recycling (ribbon corners)
DigiDoodle Shop: Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious: Anything goes
Fresh Brewed: Anything but a card
