Something for Me!!

Here's the little project I was working on! I am a "list" person! So I made a pretty little notebook folder for my purse!

Today is my last Try It Out Tuesday with the SCACD girls. I have been with them as a Guest Designer for April, June, July & now Aug and they are some of the most wonderful ladies I have met in blogland. They have touched my heart and I will be forever grateful for their welcoming kindness and love. I've learned so much from each of these super talented ladies! Thank you Susana and Suzanne for allowing me to have this wonderful opportunity! {sniff, sniff}

Ok, so today Suzanne challenged us to create a notepad or notebook cover. And when I saw this little beauty over on Patty's Stamping Spot, I just had to have it. She shows how to make it from a SU! folder. Since I didn't have any SU! folders and didn't even realize SU! made folders, I had to alter the directions to fit my particular folder. I found my pretties at Big Lots, an overflow discount store. (12 for $2.oo)
To adorn my list keeper I colored one of the new Victoria Case for SCACD images...Aud, isn't she a beauty?! She named for our very own SCACD DT gal, Aud....how do you like having auburn hair, chica?! I used celery green to accent so it would match my bag....I'm keeping this one! lol
Though, I might be having a give away for one of these later....I do have 11 more folders! lol
I have been wanting to participate in the new Pals Paper Arts challenge since it started four weeks ago...I just couldn't find the time! So finally, with their fourth challenge underway...create anything but a card....I'm getting this one in under the wire! Thank heavens for time zones! lol

Well, I hope you'll have a chance to play along with the TIOT challenge this week over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store blog, Follow Your Heart!

Praying peace, joy and much love over you! Blessings!

Maria, that is so sweet! Love it! I'll be keeping a look out for that 'maybe' giveaway! :)

Aud said...

Super wonderful!♥♥♥ Love that it matches your bag!

It'll be so sad to see you leave the team now, you've been more like a regular member than a guest, and I have enjoyed working with you sooo much!
I'll come see you on your blog often!

Big-big hugs,

oh i just love that tablet! i, too, am a list maker and there are post-its all over the place. i make little folders for them and carry them in my purse. however, whenever someone needs a piece of paper, i hand them one of my post-it pads and after they've oooohhhed and aaaahhhhed over it, i let them keep it. i'm running out of post-its - LOL!

and the pumpking frog below is fabulous!

First of all, I am so very sad to see you go...when I am just getting to know you too:o( At least we have blogland to keep us in touch!!! You are in my sidebar, so I will be sure to visit often....and there is always the group on PCP:o)
all the
As for you project, it is FABULOUS!!! I love all the vibrant pink and the way you accented in green to coordinate with your handbag. Brilliant!! I would keep this beauty all to myself too;o)

Oh what an awesome idea, Maria, I have a bag full of little bits of scrap paper that I keep making my lists on, this would make it alot tidier and easier to find lol. Just thinking....I could do with something simular to keep all my receipts in, that would make them easier to find too.....oh you wonderful lady, you have given me inspiration!!!
*hugs* Heather x

Ooh, I love notepads, lists, notebooks -- anything to help organize a hectic life! What a fun idea to create this portfolio; not only is it sweet, but SO useful and portable, too!
