Deb 2010 Altered Notebook

I'm back! I'm back! I have been crafting a lot but just haven't had the time to get the pictures on my blog. But here is the first of a couple of posts this week

As most of you know, I am a member of Delta Sigma Theta, an sorority that is almost 100 years old. My chapter has a Debutant Cotillion every year where we prepare and present young ladies to society. I made these journals for the Sleepover, which is the first event the girls have as a bonding time. It's made from a 3x5 little mini-notebook that you can get from any office supply store. The journal was meant for the young ladies to have to write down their feelings and thoughts about the night and to get the other girls information.

My original design had 2 layered butterfiles with crystals on the body and the wings of the 2nd butterfly raised up for demension. It was beautiful - when you only had to make one! When I started making the 25 I had to make for the girls, I quickly revamped the project to what you see.

  • Words - Rock Princess
  • Crown - Sentimentals
  • Butterfly - MS Elegant Cake Art

I embossed the black background with the Swiss Dots folder. I also added the piece of ribbon to the edge to cover the different colors of the cover base (they were red, yellow, blue, green and black).

Hope you love them. If so, let me know!
