*Every Girly Girl Needs THIS*

How many times do I wish I had a cute notepad by my computer to take notes on? Or while I'm out - I can't even begin to tell you how many times I'm digging in my car or my purse for something to write on ....

Here's a little notepad I created that solves all my problems, not to mention it's so girly and FUN to pick up...

Let me tell you how I created this quick and easy little notepad:

First here's the supplies you'll need:
--Glitz patterned papers: Hot Mama - Mama Zebra; Hot Mama - Mama Silhouette
--Glitz Eye Candy - Flowers
--Glitz Round Frosting - Pink
--Glitz Frosting Circles - black
--Glitz Glam Tattoo Rub-ons
--Glitz Black Alpha Cardstock Letter Stickers
--any size notepad will do, I used a smaller one
--and any color chipboard flower to add as a color accent behind the Glitz Flower Eye Candy (I chose lime green)

This is what I did:
--I cut the Mama Silhouette paper to fit my little notepad. I chose the edge with the whimsy floral design and adhered it to my notepad using strong adhesive.
--I then sanded the edges a bit and inked them in black to give it a little dimension.
--Next I added the Glitz round frosting in pink along the left edge
--I traced a flower from a chipboard flower I had lying around (any size will work) from the Mama Zebra paper. Then I sanded it and inked it before adhering to the right side of my notepad to where it was off of the edge just a little bit. I added a green chipboard flower (I wanted a pop of another color) underneath the Eye Candy flower that I added next. To spice up the flower just a little I then added the round Frosting as a flower center.
--The letter stickers from Glitz are my favorites!! I added them at the bottom spelling out "notes" and then rubbed on "GIRLY" from the Glam Tattoo Rub Ons.
And that's it - that's how you make this notepad that you can either keep for yourself or give as a gift!! Here's a little closeup:

Thanks for letting me share this project with you!!
Have a wonderful day!

Hi Leslie! Thanks SO much for mentioning my cute little hoot. I had a blast making her - yes, the owl is a her - and really appreciate you providing the inspiration with your amazing products.

I also love what you've done with your project. I'm a total pink and black girl. Gee, it's no wonder I'm such a Glitz fan. :)

Keep up the fantastic work!
