Paper Makeup M4TW notebook

You all are going to start getting confused by my posts as I try to work further and further ahead and start scheduling posts. ;o) Try to just grin and bear with me over the next month and a half, then hopefully life will return to some normalcy.

Every Friday, Paper Makeup Stamps hosts a Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge. I try to participate in these, but my Friday post line-up is already crazy so they tend to go up later in the week. 

This last Friday's challenge was to create an altered notebook. Right along with creating bookmarks, this is a huge passion in my papercrafting world so of course, I had to play along.

I live with one of these notebooks attached to my body at pretty much all times. I create a new one every 2 months to track my calendar, dt projects, lists, etc. As you can imagine, this is pretty much VITAL to my daily living right now as we head into this move. So I made this notebook to carry me through to July 4th. My lists are over-the-top and out of control right now so this particular calendar only covers one month vs. my normal two so that I have plenty of space for my list-making.

Lots of fun new products used on this to include that fab new Martha Stewart punch...LOVE IT! I also created the cover using a mix of Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely line and October Afternoon's Thrift Shop line with a little Melody Ross Brave Girl thrown in too. I like the mix of old and new looks to create this hodgepodge collage effect.

For my Moody for Music stamp from PMS, I used my watercolor pencils on her. {I really am starting to become tempted by Copics...any advice???}

Supplies used:
*Paper Makeup Stamps Moody for Music
*Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper collection and bitty alphabet
*watercolor pencils
*October Afternoon Thrift Shop Collection
*Melody Ross Brave Girls label
*Nestabilities Labels diecut
*Martha Stewart border punch
*lace trim

If you want to play along with the challenge, we would LOVE THAT!
Here are the details:
Alter a notebook, link it up to Mr. Linky (direct links only please) on the PMS blog, and please mention the challenge in your blog post. That's it! You do not have to use Paper Makeup Stamps but if you've got them why not show them off! If you link up to SCS/PCP please use keyword M4TW28!!

And DON'T FORGET! PaperMakeupStamps has a Design Team call out right now. I LOVE this team and cannot tell you how fabulous it would be to have you join us!

We are exactly 2 weeks from the packers being here to pack up the house. 
 I am sooooo NOT READY!!!!

Those lists are starting to get REALLY long with not nearly enough check-marks on them!

This is fabulous! I'm sure you would be great with copics because you are phenominal with watercolor pencils. I think they are so difficult to use. Good luck with your move!

Oh what fun it would be to carry a funky fun notebook around with you...and to use a new one every other month! I know that mine has been fun to use as I track my weight loss! Great job.
