A Challenge & A Chore [off my list]

I saw this challenge over at the CPS-Card Sketches blog yesterday and decided to participate. I'm attending a photography class tonight and wanted to bring my own journal to take notes, so I combined the challenge with my journal idea and came up with this:
And here's the close up:
This is just one of those easy "altered composition books" everyone has done, simple and quick and I actually made it right before dinner last night.
The CPS sketch was so adaptable and took all of the guess work out of the complicated "chore" of deciding what to put's so nice having a starting point whether it be colors chosen for you or, in this case, a sketch as a starting point.
The supplies I used include: Patterned paper- Ki Memories, Basic Grey, K&Company; Embossing Folder- QuicKutz Polka Dots; B&W floss- Martha Stewart; Butterfly- Creative Cafe; Dies- Stampin Up: Butterfly & Scallop Edge; Fiskars: Apron Lace; Stamp- 7Gypsies (journal); Letter stickers- American Crafts
Be sure to check out the CPS blog and participate when you can, it's a lot of fun!
