Smiley Team Altered Notebook

I am swamped with work at the office right now.  I wanted to do something that would make me smile this weekend with my one day off.  So, I decided to snoop around my paper studio yesterday and see if I had anything that would work for the Kards for Kids Smiley Team design challenge.

I really wanted to do the dinosaur one, but I don't have any plaid.  Turns out, I'm a stripes and polka dots girl!  So, I chose the nautical theme: navy, blue, grey, cream and white.

I altered this small notebook for parents at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children to keep track of appointments and medications and such.  It's about the size of a small address book, so it could easily fit in a purse or pocket.  The little boat is my own die cut design.

Altering something is a lot faster than making it from scratch.  I don't have a lot of time these days but I really didn't want to miss the first challenge.

Now back to work for me.


Thank-you for sharing your thoughts.
