Altered Notebook

I've "tarted up" this notebook for a fabby forum swap - the theme is Summer and the notebook is A5 size.
I used a mix of Basic Grey and Blonde Moments papers to give it lots of citrus-sy zing.
Other stuff used:
bloooms and assorted little flowers from all over the place.
various ribbons and fibres
little flower shaped brads, various eyelets, orange button (Blonde Moments - I think)
Bazzill cardstock
QK Katie classic letters

This is the back of the book. I cut the words with my Robo, added more mosaic tiles (my fave technique of the moment - did you guess?)

The flowers on the back are diecuts to help keep the book nice and flat - I used the Bosskutz Krazy Daisy and the QK flower dodads dies.

Is this QK die my most-used die? Probably!

I meant to put loads of ribbon bows on the ring binding before I sent it off but I completely forgot. Maybe I should send some bits of ribbon to whoever gets it so they can add their own.
Or maybe I'll just hang on to it - after all, a girl just can't have enough ribbon, eh?

I wonder how long it'll take for Jeanne's little parcel to get over to the USA....I really really want to put my pics on here........
