I love notebooks & I always have them full of lists: things to do, wish lists etc :D  so when I saw these blank notebooks in Poundland I thought they would be perfect to alter.  As you can see I kept them REALLY simple but I love this "Sophie in the Country" image from The Paper Shelter & didn't think they needed anything else, just a bit of ribbon - Less is (sometimes) More lol. The Kraft card is from Craftwork Cards. This week's challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Alter Something or a Card with at least 3 folds".  As always we have our gift certificate up for grabs at our challenges. It's worth $30 and it can be yours is if you play with a TPS image and are  drawn by Mr Random. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice, so it's a win, win situation :D

The challenges:
Less is More - Kraft & Kreme 
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes  
Papertake - Anything Goes 
Pretty Little Ribbon - Anything Goes

Here they are before
I hope you're having a wonderful week.  I'm so glad to have a day off today as we started having snow again yesterday & it was freezing biking to/from work.  I think I'll stay in the warm today & try & do some crafting :^)

Oh I'm a sucker for a note book and don't get me started on 'To Do' lists for I am The Queen of the To Do List. Such a great idea Tracey and great for personalising for someone. xx
