Use It! Challenge #9

This week's Use It! Challenge was a REALLY fun one! I think that's why I went ahead and did it. I needed something for my Pre-K son's Sunday school teachers and I thought that these covered notepads would be perfect. This one is for the assistant who is a 14 year old girl. I think that she will like this.
THE CHALLENGE:
.
1. Color challenge: PINK, BLACK, WHITE
Not as much white as I was envisioning but I like it. I immediately thought of these stickers when I saw this color combo!
.
2. Accents: SCALLOPS, RIBBON, AND BLING, OH MY!
I used all three of these on my book. I used ribbon to tie it shut. I made a scalloped border for the edge and a scalloped circle showcases my monogram. I used TONS of bling. I had a set of bling stickers that said "Bride" and had a heart and a martini glass. I cut the blings apart and decorated the scalloped circle, my lady's hat, and her bags.
.
3. Pattern: POLKA DOTS, BABY!
I wanted more polka dots but just didnt have anywhere to put them! I used dotted ribbon and use my bling to create dots on the scallop. I also used my Crop-A-Dile to create "dots" in my scalloped border. Did I mention that I used my "Swiss Dots" CuttleBug folder on the monogram circle?
.
4. D.I.Y.: aka 'do it yourself'
I completely made the border on this book. I used my corner punch to make the scallops and my Crop-A-Dile to create the circles cut out of the border.
