Mother's Day Notebook

Today is the final day of the Three's A Charm Blog Hop. I have had so much fun being part of this hop and hop you have as well. If you have been following along you came here from Ann at Creative Kuts. If you just stumbled onto this hop welcome and be sure to check out all the postings using the list below. It has been a great 3 days of blog hopping and crafting.

First let me say...

I have been a Mom now for 5 years and I really enjoy it. If you have visited my blog before you might have notice my beautiful little girl gracing the pages of my scrapbook layouts. She is a treasure and I love this day to reflect on the joy of being a Mom.

Today for the hop we are celebrating Mom. I made this cute little notebook for my mother-in-law. She is a wonderful women and is always carrying little notebooks around in her purse. I thought having one made just for her would be fun.
I covered the notebook with some basic paper from a large K and Company stack I have and added some simple letters, ribbon and a flower to complete it. The sunflower was cut from Walk in My Garden and the letters for "MOM" are off the Cricut Classic Font cartridge. In order create the darker center on the sunflower I stamped some brown ink onto it.

I have a confession to make about this notebook...Even tough I put an x on the top first page  I still ended up making it backwards and upside down. This is just a little reminder to those who want to make fun little notebooks: Pay attention to the top front page!
