Retreat Challenge

One more post from our TAC demo retreat! We were given little notebooks that had a blank cover and challenged to decorate them in the next 2 hours. Our only rule was that we HAD to stamp--couldn't just use papers and ribbons. It was fun to see how different people came up with such different ideas.

I decided to go springy because I had happended to bring some Lily Anna paper with me! I didn't think I had any tiny flower stamps with me, but then I realized that you don't have to think "floral set" to get flowers! The flower and butterfly stamps came from Wild For You, believe it or not! I had used the animals from that set many time, but I had never really noticed the flower and butterfly! Go figure. You can see the set here.

My friend Becky C. helped me decide what to put on the tabs. This makes it a handy little notebook to carry in my purse or daytimer. Thanks, Becky!

Lilly Anna SWIC and cardstock, white ultrasmooth cardstock, Claret, Reflection Blue, Chartreuse and Giverney Green Palette inks, misc. ribbon. (I made the grass using the ink pads direct to paper.)
