Hello Cupcake!

Hi all,

What a busy week this has been! Lots of meetings and deadlines at work, Saturday shopping with my friend, Sunday cooking (wanted to try something new, but boy was it fiddly!), Monday going to the movies with the hubs (sneak preview of Jack Ryan, can't really recommend it unfortunately); I can hardly remember the days that led up to this one! However, it really is Wednesday evening again and that means a new Treasured Times Challenge! 'ANYTHING GOES' this time, so come on over and share your lovely projects! The winner will get two digis of their choice from the Treasured Times store :) Here's my make:

I pimped a little notebook that I wanted to use for keeping track of upcoming challenges. This is my first attempt at ribbon pleating, I found it pretty difficult to get it all even and straight, but I am pretty happy about this first try.

* Digi: Magda by Julie Santiago, coloured with Spectrum Noirs & Promarkers
* Papermania Sweet Nothings DP
* Seedless Preserve Distress Ink
* Petaloo Flora Doodles Flowers
* Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique Wooden Sentiments, coloured with a marker to match the colour scheme
* Ribbon from stash

* Created with Love (Color Challenge: Pink and Purple)
* Allsorts (Use Ribbon, but no Bows)
* Suzy Bees (Cute and Sweet)
* Incy Wincy (Add Texture)
* Craft Your Passion (Cool Colours)
* Polka Doodles (Anything Goes/Girly)
* Diva's by Design (Use Ribbon)
* Natalie & Amy (One for the Girlies)
* Muse Challenge (Inspiration by Muse's card) I've used the cupcake theme
* CMC Copic Challenge (Anything Goes)
