Several stops along the way will be offering some nifty prizes, so please be sure to keep an eye out for that!!
For the hop today, I've created a large altered composition book and a mini note pad.
For the large book I just purchased a composition book from wal-mart and decked it out. I used a very lovely DCWV flower paper for the front. I added a purple for binding and the back. I took a fancy lace border punch and punched both sides of a piece of off white card stock then attached it to the left hand side. On top of that I added a small piece of ribbon. I placed 3 small pale pink silk roses along the ribbon. I then placed a flat back large pearl in the top and bottom right hand corners. In the middle of my book I added a large hot pink and white lacy, feathery flower. There is a handmade book marker also in the book.
For my little book I cut up about a gazillion pieces of paper 3 in x 2 in size. I chose pink and green for my inside paper to match my cover. My cover is thin plastic in pink with purple, pink, white stripes. I then added a large ring to hold it all together. I found a beautiful gem butterfly in my stash. It matched perfectly because it is pink and green. I then added a gem flower and spray under the butterfly. . I love it.
Well that is my creations for the Back to School hop. How did you like them? Here is one of them together.
I am going to be giving one lucky hop'r my large altered composition book. I will be picking one lucky winner on August 17. To be elgible to win please be a follower and leave a message below with a way to contact you.
