Sugar Bowl Challenge #2 - Three!

I bought a few of these little notebooks last year, from Asda I think, with the intention of decorating them as Christmas Presents for some of my neighbours over in Spain, but needless to say they are all still sitting in my craft room. I never got a chance to enter the first Sugar Bowl challenge due to being on holiday and I really wanted to use he wonderful sketch that Tiets provided for this weeks challenge but I just was not able to stick to the 3 rule on the DP, so I will just have to save that sketch up for another week.

As this is my first attempt at covering the from cover with cardstock and being able to punch all the holes in the correct places in order to fit it back onto the spiral I am really pleased with the finished project and will be having a go at this again. I think that this one will probably be claimed by my grandaughter Sophie.

I have used SU cardstock, 3 different sheets of Deja Views Little Ones DP and my 3 embelishments are flowers, gems and ribbon, Image is Sweet 'n Sassy from the Elizabeth Bell range at Sugar Nellie.

Have a great weekend. I am off to see a demo at the Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin tomorrow - the lovely Tracy from Funkykits is having a Bo Bunny demo - not exactly sure what she is making, but I am told that the Bo Bunny papers are to die for.
