A truly altered notebook

Good morning! 
Here is a notebook that I really have altered! I have not just decorated the cover, I have totally changed it!

This particular notepad had a plastic cover on it, which I was just going to decorate by covering with some Kraft card and embellishment. But as I was doing that, I thought I would try going a step further.

After replacing the cover, I used some This 'n That DSP, Chalk Talk Framelits and This 'n That Washi Tape. I embossed the panel with the Houndstooth EF and finished with some Candy Dots.

I am entering this into the challenge at Sunday Stamps this week, where they have this sketch...

Designer Paper - This 'n That
Embossing - Houndstooth EF
Stamp - Oh, Hello
Framelits - Chalk Talk
Other - This 'n That Washi Tape, Candy Dots

You can buy all of these products through my online store (click the link in my sidebar).

I will be back either later today or tomorrow to show you how to change the cover on these books quite easily!

I have the school run, the gym and some stained glass to make for church decorations today. Hope you have a fabby Wednesday!
