Sweet As A Peach

Howdy.  I found some time to decorate a spiral notebook.  I printed this pretty pattern paper, added some sparkle, and then added various trims:  cotton trim, satin ribbon, and a junk bow.  
I am entering my decorated notebook in the current challenge posted @ Word Art Wednesday.

I just love soft pinks, and pale blues, with vanilla/cream.  The mix of stripes, chevrons, polka dots, and florals.  So, you know that I just had to purchase this digital paper package.  And, I had a fun time putting this little work of creativity together {smile}.  Here is my creation:

This notebook measures roughly 5 1/2" x 7".  The paper inside is lined.  80 pages.  

I cut the pattern paper and adhered to the cocoa bean card stock.  I then added a simple border stitch with my sewing machine.  I love the homespun look it provides my crafts.  I machine stitched a wide section of cream cotton trim.  I wrapped a piece of gold satin ribbon around the front cover.  I tied the junk bow to a gold and rhinestone buckle.  I could not get the buckle to show in the photo, but it's there.  The sentiment is matted onto Cocoa Bean card stock.  I tucked a vanilla doily behind the sentiment piece.   
I added a trio of buttons that coordinated with the colors in the pattern paper to the bottom right corner of the notebook.  I added a trio of pale pink sequins to give the cover a little more sparkle.
Thank you for looking.  Oh, I also decorated a mini composition notebook.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I'll share more soon.
