A Recipe to Take Note Of!

Hello! Hope you're all alright and having a nice weekend so far?

I'm at my Mum's again this weekend to help her (hopefully) finish sorting and organising her new craft room; she's got to the point where she can't really move anything without someone to help and she needs more bookshelves up etc, etc so I'm back again! It's also Mother's Day over here in the UK tomorrow

It's my last 'Biggest Fan For March' post today for Bugaboo Stamps *sniff sniff* but it's been really good fun and I really enjoyed taking part in the challenges.

Well, this week it's a 'Recipe' challenge hence the first half of the title of this post, and I decided to make a little sticky note holder, hence the second half of the title! (I was clutching at straws a bit with this one! Ha ha!)

The Recipe is 4 Layers, Ribbon, Flowers.

And here's what I made (Please ignore the grey 'smudge' in the pictures, it's actually the shadow from the flower!):
I used Stella Tidbits - Drown Your Troubles, which I actually laughed at quite loudly when I saw it! =)
I used Matchmakers 'Brights' 12 x 12 Cardstock Stack from DCWV for the holder; the four layers I used were pink, orange, purple and aqua and if they look more luminous that 'bright' that's because they are! They definitely didn't look quite so day-glow on the website I bought them from!

I coloured her with Promarkers (oddly enough!): Apricot, Arctic Blue, Azure, Emerald, Gold, Honeycomb, Lush Green, Magenta, Maroon, Mulberry, Sky Blue, True Blue, Plum and Pumpkin.

As I've said before, I don't really do flowers so I decided to just add a little one in her hair to make her look nice a tropical!

I wasn't sure where to put the ribbon so I snuck it onto the spine of the cover to make it a little more interesting!

I even stuck come magnetic tape to the back so it could live on the front of the fridge!

Anywho, hope you like it!

Back to shifting boxes for Mum!
