Fab Friend?

I'm thrilled to be the MFT Fab Friend this month!!! Talk about a super fun honour!! Pop over to the MFT blog and check out Kim's post, then come back here for the deets on my little project. I'll wait......

.....thanks for coming back!!

Everyone has notepads by the telephone, right? Well I was looking at the notepad on our desk in the kitchen the other day and thought "hmmm...it's not very cute. I should do something about that.". And that's how this little notepad was born!

I started with a plain memo cube from the dollar store (for my Canadian readers...this one is from Dollarama, which means I've had it since before we moved here nearly three years ago!). I thought this sweet Pure Innocence set was perfect to jazz up my kitchen notepad.

She's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I popped her on some layers that I cut with my layered label die-namics. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink. I added two pink mini rolled roses and some white pleated ribbon, then stopped at that. I wanted to keep it fairly simple.

I stamped a few of the papers...probably about 10 of them...which was enough. I plan to take paper from lower in the pile to keep the cuteness on top!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen

I was so happy to read you found this in a dollarama. I will be scouting them to find a few to try this. I don't know about it being as cute as this one, but I will give it my best shot.

Ahem, might be going tomorrow it's -27 celsius here this morning, that is sooooo cold. LOL

Thank you for sharing your beautiful work Karen. :)Peggy
