First Hobbycutz Dt

Good Sunday morning everyone,
Today sees my first make as a Hobbycutz design team member! Super excited and glad to be part of such a talented team. So the theme for today is Recycle - we are sponsored by the lovely

I chose an image called Emily and she is just beautiful. I decided to recycle and alter an old notepad. I took the cover off and made my own front and back using green cardstock. I then distressed her slightly around the edges. Mounted it onto graphic 45 paper and added a Tim holtz pin, chit chat word and made 2 little banners. Last but not least some tiny flowers to try and mimic the ones she is holding. Hope you like my first make for Hobbycutz. I hope you will all join in over at the hobbycutz challenge blog ! Have a great weekend thanks for stopping by.
