Just Elements #2: What's the Buzz Notepad

Don't you just love the dollar bin? This week at Micheal's I found this cute magnetic notepad in the dollar bins and picked it up thinking...I could change it up a bit. We will not talk about what else I picked up at craft stores this week (Spring Break shopping can be dangerous).

I looked at what I had laying around (okay yes, some of it is newer!) and decided to play with my new favorite embellishment: FLOWERS! These cute bottles of flowers are all on clearance at Micheal's and I have been picking them up slowly over the last 2 months. I knew I wanted to add them to this remade notepad in some way. First I had to cover the notepads.
I measured, cut and scored a piece of paper from the DCWV Summer Days Stack. I scored around the magnet in back and cut it out by hand. I used the super strong red tape to adhere the paper.
Next came the flowers. I added them on with some small Zots than used my I-rock to add a little sparkle to each one. Finally I selected a fun stamp from My Pink Stamper's Buggy Punnies set to add on a hand cut label.

No Cricut, just fun elements so a perfect entry for week two of the Just Elements Challenge at Get Inspired With ChatterScene .
When all was said and done I was so happy I ran out to Micheal's to get some more of these notepads for later use. Hope you will join in this fun new challenge. It offers a $10 Paypal or Hobby Lobby Prize (winner selects 1) and also a smaller extra prize as well!
