It's Limelight Papercrafts Project Day!!!

Good Saturday Morning!
Today is the Limelight Papercrafts Project day and today our focus is on handmade flowers!

For my project, I created something that I have been wanting to make for a while...a little altered notebook. I have started reading LOTS of different series books and it is hard to keep track of when the next book in the series is coming out. This little book is to carry in my purse with the lists of all those books in it so I can keep straight what I need to look for when I go to the bookstore.


For my handmade flowers, I made these gorgeous little pom flowers from book paper. Dawn McVey has a great tutorial on how to create them that you can see HERE.


For my card and altered notebook, I used Unity's newest Stamp Store Kit, Adventures in Happiness. Limelight is supposed to receive this kit in early next week and you can preorder it on their site, HERE.


Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Adventures in Happiness
*Fiskars border punch
*Marvy Uchida circle punch
*watercolor pencils
*old book

Be sure to check out what the other Limelight Chicks have created for this fun challenge....

And simply because she likes me to take her photo when I am photographing my projects. You all haven't seen her in a while and neither has her daddy who ARRIVES HERE THIS MORNING! I cannot wait for them to get to know each other again!
