Made from a cereal box!!

Don't forget to click here, to be eligible for a huge blog candy loot!!

So this first creation was triggered by the
Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge,
(which is to use a box top or cereal box to create any project)
 fun, right?!!

I have been wanting to do a project for myself for a while but I never can find the time. Well, this morning was a time for creating for me. I enjoy playing along with various challenges and my pathetic form of remembering the challenges has been post-it. Post-it in my purse, post-its beside my computer and post-its scattered over my crafting table. It's been a mess. I came across a package of memo pads that my mother-in-law had found when cleaning out her office.
I decided to make a cover for the pad and now I have an adorable note keeping package. And it can live in my purse or wherever and it still looks cute!! When one pad is full, I can just grab another and put it in the cover.
I used a beautiful paper from Basic Grey and green ribon (my favourite color). I love how it came out. My husband wants me to make him a manly one for his medication routine journal. Stay tuned for that!! 

And with the left over scraps I made a cute card for The Sweetest Thing sketch challenge
I will be posting more soon, so come back and check for more inspiration!!
Have a happy Saturday!!
