Rupunzel takes note...

 ...with an altered notebook.

Hello everyone! As you can see I'm still trying to mix it up a little, so for this weeks Simply Sassy inspiration I've made an altered notebook. My mom is always telling me I need to be writing down all the cute, wonderful, funny things my kids do every day and I thought Rupunzel here would be perfect for just that sort of notebook. She actually kid of reminds me of myself in my youth...I had really long blonde hair and since this is for me I also gave her blue eyes like mine.

I love these papers and I'm so going to have to get more. These are from The Girls Paperie-Vintage Whimsy collection and arent they just gorgeous. All the die-cuts are from my new cricut cart Sophisticated and I used a punch to make the notebook paper edge.

Here's a closer view of how I've colored her. I got some new copics recently and I love how her hair turned out! I don't think I'lll be happy until I have all the colors, but I'm a smidge closer now. My kids think I have a lot, but when you look at that color chart it seems like nothing, ugh, why can't money grow on trees??

Well, that's it for today I'll have my sister's finished wedding invites to show you soon. Wow, that's a lot of work...probably wouln't have been so tough if they weren't vintage. I've never done so much distressing and inking in my life!! Anyway, I hope you all have had a wonderful week and have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Autum; I love this notebook, not only is Rupunzel one of my FAV Sassies, but your project is so soft and sweet. I too have been thinking of starting a journal for my kids.

Oh and if you end up finding a money tree let me know where to find one so that I too can complete my copic collection:0)
