Blue Scripture NotePad

Howdy, and welcome.  As some of you know, I sell a majority of my crafts at local Arts and Craft Fairs.  My biggest ones (traffic wise) are during the holidays.  And so, whenever I can grab an hour or so, I am using in my craft room putting something together.
Anyways, I have a few religious girl friends who share their thoughts and outlooks on life with me.  I have made them prayer books before, and little notepads with a scripture on them.  These little gems usually turn out quite beautiful and so I am making some for the holiday craft fairs.  
I am entering this little creation in the current challenge over @ Brown Sugar Challenge : 

anything goes
And since I originally got this scripture from the wonderfully talented ladies over @ Word Art Wednesday, I figure I'll enter their current challenge:  

anything goes / family friendly


Here is my hand-crafted skinny notepad:


I used some pattern paper I already had on hand.  {yeah, its ridiculous the amount of stuff my craft room can hold.}  The pattern papers (3) come from the same collection.  I machine stitched the seam binding and the lace trim to the cover.  The cameo is tied to the multi-loop bow with kraft twine, and adhered to the cover.  The cameo is not adhered to the cover, so it has some movement.  The light brown fabric blossom is adhered to the cover with a glue gun.  
The decorated clip at the bottom holds the notepad closed, incase you want to take your notepad with you.  It fits wonderfully in a tote/back pack/hand bag.  Or simply move the clip to the top of the notepad and it will hang from a message board.
This skinny notepad is prefect for making lists.  It has 25 pages of lined paper inside.  This notepad is currently for sale in my Etsy shop HERE.
Have a great weekend.  I am heading back into my craft room.  I want to make another book similar to the one I made yesterday.  But this one, I want to add some prayers.  I'm thinking 4 1/2" x 6", again, for the size.  That way, you have room for photos (from social media) and room to write, journal, or simply jot notes down.  I'm thinking of making about 10 of these for the craft fairs.  I'll post them in my Etsy shop first, before they make it to the craft fairs.  Remember, my first craft fair starts the beginning of November 2015.  So far, I am in 3 craft fairs.  I am a possible vendor for a fourth craft fair.  And as always arriving early provides you with the best selection.

I should think all your friends would like these to jot down self talk or anything. This is so beautiful the blue seam binding really is spectacular. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday, on our 193rd challenge.
Blessings and Hugs, Carole
