Oh so much goodness...such fun colors too!!!

I decided to do a non-card project for the hop...

Yup, I covered a note pad...

I gotta write myself notes or else I'll forget.  For some things, like DT assignments, I like the Old School way of using paper...I use my phone for reminders but really when it is a crafty day, paper lists work best for me.

I'm a vintage die hard Cosmo Cricket fan...what's that mean?  I have all the older sets from Early bird etc...but haven't picked up anything new in awhile....

I absolutely adore the 2WENTY THR3E Collection....delish colors!

I used one of the solid papers out of the paper pad with my hello die that I have in my stash...I inked up the chippie that it is nestled on with Impress Fresh Inks Strawberry & Pink Lemonade.

The cording is not adhered so it can easily slide off of the note pad.

Check out the back of the note pad...seriously, easy smeasy.

Check the Rafflecopter giveaway!!!!!!!!!

  11. I'm paper all the way - I clip it up at my desk. I probably should use a board, since I tend to layer....and with lists that ain't good ;)
    I love the colours you've gone with - and what's cracking me up? That I can imagine the different tones you'd have to say 'hello' in, depending on how much you've managed to forget...'duh, HEL-LO!' to 'oh, hello, sweetie.' Yeah, either too much or not enough coffee today ;)

  12. love your darling covered notepad!

  13. This is adorable! I agree - I have a paper notebook for all of my crafty notes too!
