Altered Notebook

Evening folks,

I've had a very lazy day today ... a slow start and an even slower day. My get up and go has got up and gone!

However, I do have this little altered notebook to share with you. And it's one for Pixie's Crafty Snippets #50.  Di, you'll be relieved to learn that this is probably my last submission for this week ... it's too cold, wet and miserable for the playground :))

It's just one of those little memo pads that can be bought in packs from Tesco's - they're an inexpensive buy and the covers are easy to alter. The papers, Papermania A Silent Night, are from the snippet box, of course, and the embellishments came out of my bun tray. It takes the tiniest bits of ribbon and paper to fit across the width of the cover.

The topper is yet another from Cardmaker's Delights - this time the non-Christmassy image is of a perfume bottle - I love the roses. I think this will make a nice little stocking filler for one of my lovelies.

I'm hoping for a bright day, instead of this interminable rain that is our lot right now, some time soon so that I can go down to the woods ... with my secateurs ... looking for some evergreens to decorate the house. I love the scent of fresh green foliage at this time of the year - and it's festive looking too.

The EM has just announced that he is going up into the attic tomorrow and bringing down the tree and decs. At last!

Take care all and have a lovely weekend.

Happy crafting too,


  1. So very pretty. I love the look of this one...great colours and a really pretty image!

  2. Oh Elizabeth, your notebook is gorgeous. I love it. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xx

  3. Your little notebook is delightful, the roses are beautiful on it. Hugs, Anne x

  4. Your altered notebook is just FAB Elizabeth.

    YAY for the EM getting in the festive spirit and taking a trip to the attic for the dec's. Wahooo.

    Talking of festive spirit . . . er, we're all behind the treehouse with some bootleg eggnog and mulled wine . . .might be a mince pie left if you hurry!

  5. Fabulous idea Elizabeth for a note book and you have covered it so beautifully x

  6. A beautiful little notebook x

  7. What a fantastic idea, and I was looking at those notebooks! I envy you being able to use evergreens in the house, they'd die in the heat of this flat! My decs are up, thanks to a kind hearted friend who got them out of our loft and helped me put them up.

    And thankyou so much for the supportive comments, they mean a lot.

    take care

    Cassidy xx
