Altered Notebooks

Hi, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas celebration. We certainly did. We fried turkey in our makeshift fryer and they turned out great. I prepared all the all-American fixin's like sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, cornbread dressing and cheesecake for dessert! We invited some of our Croatian friends who tasted many of these for the first time and they loved it! It was a great day to spend with our church family and friends.

I'm slowly getting back to normal schedule, but it's hard when my girls are home and we just want to watch videos and/or play games all day in our jammies! For today's project, I have some altered Ikea notebooks that I gave away as gifts this Christmas. Excuse the not-so-good photos, but I was in a hurry to take these before the recipients arrived :).

Here are close up shots of these covers. I just glued some old October Afternoon papers, put some fancy big ribbons, stamped some Spellbinders-coordinating stamps (LOC's Elegant Labels and TCM's Season's Greetings) and added Want2Scrap Nestabling.
Notebook 2
These verse and quote are some of my favorites, from LOC's Encouragement set. For this one below, I tucked in a Fancy Tag die that is cut in half.
