Composition Time!

What a great week we've had, I sure hope you all enjoyed yours! The weather has been great, my belly is growing more each day and I've started to wear a few pieces of maternity wear ;).

Last night we even got to go to a concert on the beach! They have the Patriotic Festival here each year and last night was Sugarland and tomorrow is Travis Tritt! We had so much fun last night, and if the rain holds we'll have fun again tomorrow!!! I love concerts.

I have a cabinet full of things waiting for me to transform them. This week I decided to tackle the remaining composition books I had on hand. So, I made three journals with matching beaded pens. I like it when I can put some of my retired designer paper to good use ;).

I used Au Chocolate, Petals & Paisleys and Dots & Dashes. I also pulled out my chipboard for the accents in the lower right corners and of course ribbon!!! I love ribbon. And the final touch is the matching beaded pens!!!

I hadn't made any of these since my days of craft fairs in Okinawa, over a year ago!! They used to sell like hotcakes! My daughter even had one of her beaded pens at school the other day and the kids were all ooohhhhing and aaaahhhhing over her pen. That makes the creator feel good :)
