A Notebook for work for 2010

Here goes the millions of times I write 2009 and then have to scribble it out and write 2010 instead. I don't know about you guys but my workbooks are always neat and tidy I hate them being all messy with things scribbled out.

I decided to alter a notebook to use for when I started the new year at work as otherwise I just have a plain old boring notebook to use. Here is what I made;



I love it and it has gone down well with my collegues at work too :)

I also made a tissue box




I made this using my score pal. The paper was a gift from my mum at Christmas which I reinforced with cardboard inside. I cut the hole in the top using my oval X Cutter. I was going to put an image on this but I decided it looked nice all simple with little glittery bits added on to the flowers. You can see those much better close up.

I am entering these in to the following challenges;

By the Cute and Girly - New (These are for a new year at work and I used my new score pal to make the box)
Papertake Weekly - New Beginnings
Everybody Art - Favourite colour combo (my new fave is yellow I made one other card with this before xmas and loved it)
Crafty Creations - There is glitter on my tissue box

These look fabulous. Love the little images on your note book. Great recycling with your christmas paper too. I am yet to write 2010 but i'm sure when I have to write it on something it will be 2009!!
Good luck with the challenges you've entered.
