Altered Notebook - MIM #106 DT project

It's Make It Monday time once again. I really enjoy seeing so many fabulous entries during the week and would love to see even more!!!!
Congratulations to Tanya on being our featured entrant this week and to Teresa who is the winning commenter, I hope you enjoy your prize from  last week's sponsor.

Our Sponsor for this week is the fab Bugaboo Digi Stamps  and you can see the wonderful prize they are offering further down in this post.
I was lucky enough to be able to use Edward Elephant - Flower which you can find here at Bugaboo Digi Stamps 
I decided to make an altered notebook this week instead of a card.  To do this you have to take the spiralled binding out and then decorate the front cover, punch the holes again and (the hard bit, LOL) then put it back together. Not too hard as long as you keep the pages all lined up and once you start it threads back quite well.
Here is a picture of the finished notebook:

 Sorry the close up doesn't look quite right - a bit dark and it doesn't show the shading of the greys.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 

 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   atTotally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!

My POTW is this beauty from Kasey from Paisley Wings & Crafty Things  and you can find it here  . Love the clean crisp image, the embossing and diecuts.  A fabulous card.           

My fingers are already itching to click on those thumbnails and come and visit your blogs to check out your creations, so get out the card, papers, stamps, glue etc and start creating!!!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week
