Hi everyone

I wonder how many of you are like I am and just love using up scraps and stash.  Somehow there is such a lovely feeling to achieve something from nothing.  Alright I know we purchased these things initially, but when they have been sat there for a long length of time and then suddenly they see daylight I always feel as though I have achieved something by using them.  Plus, if it is using up scraps, well that is just a lovely feeling and makes me feel pleased I did not throw them out.

So, as I am getting together some things for the Summer Craft Fairs I delved into the things in my cupboard which were purchased probably three years ago for this purpose.  You will be seeing a few of these little altered notebook/organisers over the next few weeks I guess.

So, this is a little 6 x 4inch book.  I have used some of myold Magnolia papers,ones which I probably would not use for making a card.  Everything actually did come from my stash on this one.  The two right corners are adorned with a triangle cut from the same paper edged with a little scrap of lace.

The inside cover and back cover are both covered with paper too, there being a little pocket on the inside cover.

As always, thanks for looking today
