Count Those Points!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!!

Here is a little decorated composition book that I created for...well, me!!! LOL!!

After having Avery, I realized that I had best get myself back to Weight Watchers if I have even the smallest bit of hope to fit back into some of my clothes before I have to go back to work!

As soon as I saw this ADORABLE Pure Innocence Making A List from the last My Favorite Things release, I knew she would be perfect for what I had in mind!!

I wanted a little book to keep in my bag so I can keep track of all my points. I thought she looked like she was perhaps keeping track of her points too...giggle!!!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut her out and embossed her with Oval Nestabilities. Her dress was paper pieced with one of the patterns I used on my book, which are all from Snow Day from Crate Paper!

I added a border with the Die-Namics Open Scallop Border Die, and using the Banner Day Alphabet, I spelled out "Points" on the bottom of my book! A yummy ribbon created with the Bow Easy is the only adornment on this one!!

This was SO super fun, not to mention easy, to make. Let's hope eating the correct amount of points is as painless! Wish me luck!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
