My "My Pink Stamper's Design Team " audition

Robyn from My Pink Stamper is looking for crafters to become members of her Design Team.  Robyn's blog was one of the first blogs I started to follow when I started paper crafting. She is an inspiration to all her followers.  Please if you do not already follow her site please check it out by going to My Pink Stamper.  I would be honored to be chosen as a member of her design team.

The challenge was to make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......

(other optional color of your choice)
I love to do altered items and I have wanted to make a journal for myself.  This is my project..............
It started as a simple composition book - I always purchase a lot of these when school supplies are put out in August/September.  They are usually around 25 cents each.

 I took the colors of the challenge and looked for papers and accessories that would fit into the challenge.  

I then used my trusty friend the Gypsy to help me create the cuts for the front of the journal.  

Supplies used:
Composition book
Brown Card stock x 2 pages
Green Card stock x 1 page
Turquoise Card stock x 2 pages
Orange Card stock x 1 page
White Card stock x 2 pages
Imagine cartridge:  Imagine More Cards (tea cup cut @ 3 in and the patterned paper in the lettering and flowers)
Imagine cartridge:  Blast Off (lettering cut at .5 in)
Plantin schoolbook cartridge - to cut the flowers:  4 ea @ 2.4 in and 2.5 in
ATG gun
Gliter pen in hunter green and crystal (got to have some bling)
2 Crystal brads
Grosgrain ribbon
The end result..................................

I really hope you like this project - I value your input and look forward to hearing your comments.  Please also feel free to become a follower!!
