Butterflies & Blogs Birthday Hop!!!!

Welcome to the Butterflies & Blogs Birthday Hop!! First I want to wish Laura a VERY Happy Birthday!!!!This is my very first time being in a blog hop. I am so excited to share my projects with you. A BIG thank you to Laura for letting me participate with so many talented women. If you just came across this hop and you want to start from the beginning then make sure you start HERE. You should have came from Corri's blog to mine. I hope that you will enjoy this HOP and get inspired in so many ways. Now on to my items to share. I made two different items for my hop. I made a altered notebook with Butterflies ( of course).
I used a legal size notepad I got from Staples and had them cut it in half. If your Staples has a copy center inside, just ask at the counter. They have a heavy duty cutter to take care of thick pads like these.Then I used butterfly themed paper to cover it.I used tulle to tie a mechanical pencil to the pad, and  I added a magnet on the back because I love mine on the fridge to put my grocery list in.

Next I made a paper bag album. Which I love to make. Here are a couple of pictures of the one that I made for the hop. I used three paper bags, folded them together, tied it with ribbon, and decorated. I used several Martha Stewart border punches, made some handmade flowers and lots of ribbon.

I hope that you will have fun on the hop and win some blog candy along the way. Oh, talking about blog candy..... I have some!!! Here is how you could win.
