Decorated Steno Pad

I just love to decorate Steno Pads. They are the perfect size to do a lot with. I purchase them at our local Dollar General they cost a whole $1. Gotta love that. They really make wonderful gifts and the people who receive them are just thrilled. This one I made for several different challenges but will be going to a friend. =) The beautiful cherries come from a stamp set by Doodle Pantry the set is called Oranges and Cherries. I just love the sentiment, how perfect is that!
