Cincy and this week’s JBWW Challenge

Were back from the Pampered Stampers retreat in Cincy!!! We had so much fun! It was such a great bunch of girls. Dang, the girls just knock my socks off with the beautiful swap cards & 3-D items. Fabulous!

Here’s a couple pictures we took (well, Kittie took them and I stole them from her camera 🙂 ).

The first picture is Sherry, me & Dawn (DawnL) with a wonderful cake that Amber (Bambi64) made for us. All our birthday’s are in October. Is she the sweetest?


The next picture is Jen  and Kittie (Kittie747). They are just so darn cute!


On to todays JBWW Challenge!!!

Sherry Cheever is our host today. You can check out her blog for more Cincy pictures!

Here’s your challenge ……………alter and little notebook, journal or whatever you have on hand. Make it simple or fancy, what ever strikes your fancy!

Here’s mine!

This was my 3-D Swap for the Cincy gathering. It started out as a square notebook from Target. I covered the front and back with patterned paper (using Tacky Tape) then sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa. I stamped the Jolie’s Fleurs flowers on the front and back randomly. I then stamped one flower on each page in the notebook. I attached the ribbon to the front using Tacky Tape. I left enough hanging loose on the inside to use as a bookmark. The flower on the front was colored with Copic Markers, cut out and then attached to the front with Foam tape. Easy project!

Stamps: Jolies Fleurs – Lizzie Anne Designs

Paper: Dasher – Basic Grey

Ink: Noir Black Palette, Purely Pomegranate, Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Copic Markers, Target notebook, Ribbon from May Arts
