A Retro-Fresh Book Keeper!

Happy Day to You!!! 
It's Wednesday and although I feel a bit crummy, more on that later, and blogger had been misbehaving in the worse kinds of way this week - I'm in a good mood! hee hee! It must be all the chocolate I've been eating... sigh... yes, it must be since I've gained about 7lbs since Christmas, lol! 

Moving on to the fun stuff for today :) 

This month, Jess is challenging us to think 'paper dimensions'!!! 
Pop up those TGF stamps by using pop dots, silicone glues, etc. Whatever gives you that extra pop! 

I wanted something to help me keep track of all the books that I own, whether it be on my bookshelf or e-reader, and also, a wishlist of books that I want to read this year! So, I decided to alter a black/white notebook... 


I also used Splotchy and some clear stamps from Lucky Bunnies and Made By


I colored Bonnie with Copics and paper pieced part of her dress with My Mind's Eye Portobello Road DP and used a white pen to highlight her a bit to make her 'pop' since everything looked so dark against her white-ish dress... 

On the inside, I added some alpha stickers to create a directory and have started penning in what I have so far :)  This has been one of the best things I've ever created for myself - I no longer have to run to the computer to add stuff in before I forget! Yes, I'm ol' fashion, I like the pen to paper technique too! AND it helps to keep me off the computer too, lol! 

You have all month to play along with the challenge! 
Be sure to stop by and check out what the DT has created too :)


Enjoy your Wednesday!!! 
xoxo
