Journal makeover....

Hello everyone :) I was browsing the aisles of Michael's the other day when I came across this journal and thought to myself "I could do something with this". So here is what I came up with. I wanted you to see what type of journal I started with and of course the end result. I know just the right person to send this to.

Can't say who because then she would know! However there is a hint in the pictures...lol A rather big hint if you ask me :)
This is the inside of the journal and I didn't think want to leave it blue so I covered it as well. The spiral punch from Stampin Up! works great for this journal.



I hope she will really like it. I LOVE the saying on the front. lol :) Thanks for looking!!


















Journal recipe:
Sassy Suzie (retired) SU! chocolate chip satin ribbon, pink grosgrain, berry bliss dsp, whisper white and chocolate chip cardstock. Most SU! products.

Happy Stamping!!

Very cool. What an odd shape for a notebook. Sadly, I live in a small town a.k.a No-good-stores-like-michaels. Really nice project! Bravo!

Cute journal! I keep meaning to alter some that I bought for altering...but they are still sitting there, months later. You have inspired me to get busy!

You are so creative doing that with plain journals from Michael's. I would not have thought of that. Kudos to you : )
