Altered Note Book for Simon Says Stamp

Simon’s last challenge for the year is to use a stamp.  Well that’s fun.  Here is an altered notebook that I have made for my niece.  It was in the $1.00 bin at Michaels and had boring colors on it and Christmas words.  To make it work for her for a trip she is taking in January, I made it in pink which is one of her favorite colors.  She had commented on a little notebook that I made for HYCCT and I wanted to remember to make one for her.  I first covered the notebook with some coredinations cardstock that I embossed and sanded.  Then STAMPED on it. The arrow is a Heidi Swapp embellishment and the other elements are homemade.  Using Mark’s Finest Paper sentiment and train and then My Favorite Things oval and the scallop border from Blueprints 4 I love the way it turned out.  The chip board is embossed and then swiped with a gelato.  Can’t wait to get it in the mail tomorrow for her Friday birthday.
