ICS #63 - altered notebook

Sketch 63 is up and running over at Inspirational Card Sketches. 
I created an altered notebook with the sketch ,
using Webster's Pages Garden Gala paper. 
Wow ! I seem to be having a fest 
for Webster's this week so far ! lol.
I didn't intentionally schedule anything, seriously ! 
Image and sentiment 
is by Crafty Secrets. 

I don't usually decorate the back of my notebooks 
but for this one, i decided to have a bit of fun  with distressed inks 
and a Tattered Angels decorative screen. 
This notebook was also a little RAK for
from whom I won this sweet blog  Rak not so long ago. ;) 

I also tried out making some paperbag flowers here 
 out of a Studio Calico kraft bag, 

using my Martha Stewart pop-up water lily punch . 
I used Such Sweet Tierney buttons for the flower centers. 
Check out the SALE going on there

I could do a little tutorial on it 
if anyone is interested.

I did get the idea from  here on GCD Studio's blog.

Beautiful notebook, Pearl! Love, love that Webster's paper....having the banner go across the top is just perfect. The stenciling on the back is a great touch.
Love your paper flowers! They are gorgeous!
