Notepad Box and CHA

This was a little project I made for gifts.  JoAnn's had some notepad boxes already covered in this cute paper, so thought they would be fun to jazz up the tops.

All these terrific Magnolia products are from that specially nice Diana at Magnolia-licious.

Can you tell I LOVE the minis and the dies!!!  To help us out, Diana has the dies discounted, so please check them all out HERE.   There are some new ones too!!!

I've also used a Punch Bunch mini sun and a Spellbinders scalloped and plain oval.  Water colored this happy little girl in Distress Inks on watercolor paper.  What???  No stickles???  Hmmm, must have missed those!
Now I did stamp on the notepad too, but NO, I did not stamp every page.  As crazy as I am, I thought about it, but thank goodness didn't have enough time!!!  :)

Okay, now for CHA!  Oh my, what a dream come true!  We had so much fun!  I'm still flying high!!!

Suzanne is so sweet and has such a positive energy.  Yup, Ruby is as full of enthusiasm in real life as on her blog and comments.  Angie is a "Little Darling" and yes cute as can be!!!  It was so great to meet them!!!  I've been such an admirer of all their work!  Hi gals!!!!  I'm hoping some of their talent rubbed off on me!!!

Sheila, Diana's niece is such a sweetie too!  Now to meet Diana and Roy in real life was such a pleasure!  A person just couldn't ask to know nicer people and sooo generous!!!  Can't thank them enough for this opportunity and everything else!

The aisles and aisles of product is overwhelming, it all becomes kind of a blur.  I did get around to check out a few things.  There were a few "papercrafting celebrity" sightings too!  :)

Here are a few pictures of our group.  I can no longer keep my photo anonymity now!!!  There is a reason why I put flower pictures on my blog instead of me!!!!  Reality is harsh sometimes!!!!  :)

 Diana, Roy, Sheila
 Suzanne, Sheila, Roy, me
 Ruby, me
 Angie, me, Suzanne, Diana
 Me, Mary Giemza
I've followed her blog for a long time!!!
 Ruby, me and many of the mini tags I've been working on!!!
 Ruby, Angie, Suzanne, me
And finally the fun group all together!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
Enjoy every day!!!

Patti Jo, absolutely loved your little box.. the coloring and layout is simply fantastic.. now as for you, even though I love seeing your handmade flowers on your picture, I now love to see you as you are a beautiful person, always have been, so now you can put your picture on and keep your handmade flowers on top of your blog.. Your big heart and wonderful personality makes everyone love you who know you, so you get off that idea that you can't show a picture of yourself.. Everyone is beautiful!!
Love and hugs, Jean
