Pink Licorice and Pink Midnight
Yummy right!!!!
I know I just LOVE them!!!!

if not head on back to the Trendy Twine Blog HERE
you will not want to miss any of the gorgeous projects and the chance to win one of the 3 Gift Certificates being offered as blog candy!!

For my project I made a cute altered notebook~ 
Yes my
"LOVE NOTES"
I started out with a notepad that I picked up at Walmart for $1 and covered it with some pattern paper that I had in my stash.....which was a PERFECT match to the 
Pink Midnight Trendy Twine
I wanted to do something different with the twine so I used my stitched heart die from
My Creative Time. I covered a piece of cardstock with super sticky tape..then ran lines of the twine over the top. After the area was completely covered, I die cut my heart out..Tada...doesn't it look awesome!!!
I added a button and a bow and glued it all the the notebook.
I wanted to make a cute little charm to hang from the pad as well so I used again the stitched heart die,the heart stamp that matches and some shrinky dink paper....
Talk about fun.....I think shrinking the whole thing was the best part..LOL!!
I tied it to the notebook with more Trendy Twine.
So there you have it....I hope you like my notebook!!!
You are now off to my sweet friend and fellow DT sister~
