A Stitched and Altered Notebook...

The current challenge over the Ribbon Girl Blog has been running for about a week now and this th's colours are pink, brown and cream. 
I went for something a bit different for me this time and had a lot of fun creating this notebook cover with lots of bits and bobs from The Ribbon Girl shop.

Love the top stitch threads from Gutterman that are now in stock, perfect for decorative stitching on cards as well as fabric.  This lush velvet ric rac that I've gathered to make tiny blooms, and tiny brass safety pins just the right size for tags and charms.
I've used an A6 spiral notebook that I've taken apart and rebound with pretty polka dot covers.
Why don't you join in this month, you've got until 3rd March to enter and as usual there's some lovely prizes on offer.  Check out the Ribbon Girl blog for all the details and lots of inspiration from all The Ribbon Girls.
