Note To Self...

I've been told I'm a Type A personality and I recently found out that those types of people are very organized and love lists.  Well, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a note taker and list maker... I am constantly writing down ideas of things I want to do (yes I really do have a growing "to do" list), techniques I want to try and ideas for card sketches, projects and other "stuff".  Writing it down helps me not only remember but it also un-clutters my mind.  If I don't write it down I usually forget it all.

I'm always in need of just one more notebook or pad of paper so I made this today ... 

It just so happens that this month's Club Scrap kit is Office Space which has a fun funky retro 70's feel to.  Cool huh? 

 As luck would have it the last time I was at Wal-Mart they were setting up their school supply section and snagged some cool composition books - both lined and graph paper! The lined comp book was only 50 cents!!!  How cool is that?  The graph book was 97 cents but who doesn't love to mess with graph paper?  

I set about covering it with some of the cardstock and pattern papers.  Remember, when working with a comp book or journal to protect the inner pages with a plastic bag so you don't get any glue on the pages.  I usually just wrap a bag around the pages and leave it there till I'm finished with both front and back.

I used this pretty teal green paper for the back cover.

And for the inside of both the back and front covers I inked up a couple pieces of kraft cardstock with a variety of Memento Inks to match the color of the papers.  I wish you could see how vivid this is in person.  It is so pretty and you can see all of the various colors I used.

One for the front, one for the back, corners rounded and glued it in place!

I'm ready to start making a "Note to Self"!
