Quick altered notepads

Wow what a week.. Today is already Wednesday the 12th.. That means there's only 12 more days till Christmas.. and sooooooo much to do..

I have a friend "Pat".. sometimes she has more faith in me than I have in myself. On Saturday I officially began the journey that will alter the course of the rest of my life. My goal is to loose 134 lbs. An average sized model or a couple small children... if you want to look at it that way... Today Pat & I had a bet.. I guessed that by this afternoon I would have lost 5 lbs.. Pat guessed 8. I told her that if she was right I'd make her a gift tonight.. Well, she has some insightfulness that I don't have because I lost 8.6 lbs. So Pat... I'm a woman of my word... This is for you.
I made 2 covered note pads (the 2nd is for another co-worker who was almost out of paper today... So what the hey... She'll be surprised)... For these I used...

Card Stock.. Soft Sky, Cosmo Cricket Dutchgirl DS Paper (these were the letters as well)
Accessories.. MS white and aqua twill ribbon, rain drops, stickles, bob & ron rub-on's, hemp twine, versa mark & clear embossing powder.

Wow... 8.6 lbs in 5 days.. GO FIGURE :)
Happy Stamping ...
