To Do's, Post-it notes and butterflies unite!!

Hello there!  Do you ever feel crazy overwhelmed with all of your To Do's?!  I sat down this morning to do some organizing and realized that I had about a bazillion Post-It notes stuck to everything and four different To Do lists in the works and several other loose notes floating around!   I decided I really needed to consolidate some things, so I prettied up a Composition notebook and did just that! I made a master list and only kept the most essential post its!  ((Doesn't mean my new list won't be plastered with those little sticky guys in no time though! I have a soft, squishy spot in my heart for post it notes!))  Anyhow, this way I can at least try to keep everything in one place!  Here is my newly made over To Do and Don't Forget note keeper:

I stamped the Swallowtail stamp onto Whisper White and then fussy cut it out!  I used the awesome new Blendabilities markers to color it and then sprayed it with the Vanilla Smooch Spray!  That stuff is so pretty!  Try as I might I could not get a picture that captured the sparkle.  It is really pretty in person. 

I used the Work of Art stamp set and Yippee-Skippee stamp set to dress up the rest of the focal point piece and added a Rhinestone! 

It just shimmers and sparkles!  The wings are floating free so they bounce when I open and close the book!  

This is the back.  I stamped one of the pretty flowers from the Petite  Petals stamp set to make my own DSP!  I did this on both the front and back.   

The Details:
Stamps: Petite Petals, Work of Art, Swallowtail and Yippee-Skippee
Paper: Blushing Bride, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip
Ink: Misc Blendabilities,  Momento Black, Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake
Punches and Dies: None
Extras: Rhinestones and Vanilla Smooch Spray

These notebooks are so easy to cover and you can dress them up any way you like! Have you tried one?!  You totally should!! 

Ok, I am going to hit the road!  I hope that you have Friday full of wonderful stuff!  I am expecting a big ole' Stampin' Up box to arrive anytime now so there will be some definite playing in my future!!  New catalog time is just so exciting!!

I will be back soonest!
