365 Day Challenge Notebook

I made this composition notebook for my 365 Day Challenge. I liked the color scheme of the card I made yesterday and wanted to incorporate my Cricut and all of the Stampin' Up! Designer Paper I've been hoarding. The notebook is one (of about 60) I bought at Target for $.12 when they had all the school supplies on clearance. Don't you just love Target?

Here are the details:
Stamps: Simply Said, A Little Birdie Told Me
Paper: SU! Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana, Groovy Guava DP
Ink: SU! Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana
Accessories: Cricut George cartridge, SU! eyelets, SU! Ice Rhinestone Brads, Scallop Circle Punch, Accents and Elements, non-SU ribbon

The notebook only has 100 pages, but if I use both sides, I'll end up with enough room for photos and journaling for 200 days. And, if you saw my previous post, I *know* I won't be able to do this every day. So, 200 might just be enough. I really hope that I'll say that I did it every day, but geesh, the kids don't even get a bath every day sometimes.

Todays journaling was a quote about imperfection, so I talked about being a perfectionist and took a photo of my smudged nail polish, as an example. This is really fun, you should try it!

What a great idea! I too have oodles of hoarded DSP and a stack of 12 cent Target composition books. :)

This turned out so totally cute!!! I also bought about 80 notebooks last year when they were .12 each! I've made a bunch using the Cricut, too. I need to pull them out and create something new. Thanks for the inspiration!
