Speaking of the list, I wanted to give you my reviews of the movie The Bucket List with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman (one of my favorite actors, I just love his voice). The previews of this movie shows lots of funny scenes but the story line is much more serious...along with those funny moments. I do recommend the movie, it's great! It delivers a serious message but in a light hearted way.
Now on to today's post. I worked kind of backwards on this project because I created this stamped image piece first but had no idea what I wanted to do with it. I just wanted to play with Karen Lockhart's new Apron stamp. Is't it nicely illustrated? I paper pieced the apron with polka dot and striped patterned paper and colored the rest with Copic markers. I added some buttons, a little flower, some stitching and some distress ink to give the apron a vintage feel.
I decided that I would make a little notebook for lists. I cut up some grid paper to use for the inside of my list. I love to use grid paper because I can doodle and sketch and I just love all the little squares. I covered the chipboard cover with some Cosmo Cricket paper, assembled my cover and cut holes with my Zutter Bind It All.....great for making your own notebooks!
For the horizontal strip, I used Papertrey's new Kraft cardstock, the Polka Dot Basics stamp and Palette New Canvas white ink.
I dug out some chipboard letters from my stash drawer and inked them with red ink and dried them speedy quick with my heat tool. Here's my assembled notebook. I simply call it the LIST. I dont' know about yours, but my family is constantly saying, *hey mom, we need more *blank*....well put it on the LIST, duh!! Then they ask *where's the list?*......good grief people. Sooooooo nowwwww they have no excuse. The list is labeled the LIST.....should be easy to find right!? Here's what the inside looks like.
And here it is displayed with a vintage apron on a hanger(courtesy of Karen Lockhart, thank you Karen!) I decorated my new white pantry cabinet with all sorts of patriotic stuff for July 4th decorations. It's a big time of year for us.....Josey's birthday is on the 4th, my mom's is the 1st and we have a HUGE July 4th bash. Good times.
Well, I gotta run....my folks are coming over with their pickup and we're headed off to get the girls' mattresses for their new rooms. Have a great day! It's a beautiful one here in Kansas today!
