Simply Noteworthy ;o)

You know how you get started on a project and you're having so much fun and it just saddens you when you finish it? I had that with these notebooks, which were designed by my friend Monique for our challenge blog a while ago. They are so easy to make and so fun to give away! I'm giving one to a colleague, who was browsing through my blog, stumbled upon an earlier version I'd made and wanted one too...after weeks of her dropping not-so-subtle hints I've finally decided to give in, and here they are (be warned: picture overload *lol*):

Now this cutie pie has to be teacher's pet doesn't she, I'm surprised she's not carrying a shiny new apple for the teacher...although it might be in her lunch pail ;o). I love this Sassy for her big glasses, hair which is a dream to colour (I have hair colouring problems sometimes, but not with this one :D!) and her funky legwarmers. And don't even get me started on those shoes, Krista has done it again! They look like the kind that tone your legs and other bits when you walk don't they, what are they called again?

Anyway, listen to me waffling on again, I'd best be off to enjoy the rest of my weekend, hope you're enjoying yours too! Have you been on our vintage Sassy hop yet? Today is the last day, so if you want to see some gorgeous creations by the DT and have a chance at winning a prize, why not join us on the hop and scatter some comments on the way? You can find all the details HERE. Happy Hopping!

Speaking of hopping, did you see Kathrin's fantastic Easter project HERE? Makes me want to go out and buy some what else is new eh ;o)

Materials I used:
Simply Sassy "High School Student"; sentiments by Papertrey Ink and Kaisercraft Paper: Elzybells kraft cardstock; My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose: Hazel Collection Embellishments: Zva Creative swirls and pearls
Tools: Stampin' Up! punch; MFT Die-namics

That's all from me on this sunny Sunday, hope you likey and if you want to make this notebook cover yourself, the description (in Dutch and English) can be found HERE. This cover holds an A6 notepad and can be easily adapted for the Post-It notes.
