Roses Notebook

I made this notepad for my Mom. She is a list maker. I have followed in her footsteps there. After Christmas our Michaels store had tons of these pads, yes they are decorated with Christmas and winter items but I cover that up. I purchased several, ok lots, of these at 90% off. Gotta love that. My Mom loves it, she gets much needed notepads and I get to make them and watch her face light up. The roses and sentiment on the book are from a set called Roses to Die for from Clear Dollar Stamps. It is a new set for the month of March. I also used the dies called Blooming Bouquet Die Set. They match perfectly with the roses. The sketch on the front of the pad is from Card Positioning Systems.
At Creative Inspirations they are having a "no square card" challenge. At For Fun Challenge they wanted to see flowers and a sentiment. At both Tuesday Throwdown and Secret Crafter wanted to see a project not a card this week. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your creations make someone smile today! =)

This notebook screams "Party!" to me. It's just so much fun to look at and I wish I could touch all of the ribbon and texture. Umm... really...I'm not weird or anything...Your mom is lucky, Sarah, great job.
