New Challenge & Give Away

I don't know about you, but when I am doing my grocery shopping at Fred Meyer, I always have to check out the craft supplies, and of course the seasonal stuff too. This time of year they are gearing up for back to school and I love all the new gadgets that they come out with. The colors of paper clips, the binder clips and so much more. I have a regular office supply store in with my craft supplies. Well, the deal of the day was that they had the composition books on sale for $.50 each with a coupon for buy one get one that's 4 notebooks for $1.00.... I love these books and find that they make a great journal, a place to jot notes in when I am talking to Barrie, and the list goes on and on.
So... here is our challenge for the month of August. Use a composition book, or other blank notebook and alter the covers (front & Back)  to make a journal or something else that would be useful for you, or even your back to school kids. You can use any kind of paper, or embellishments, but, the only flowers you can use would be hand made ones.  With so many tutorials out there for different flowers, we would love to see you make your own. The book needs to have tabs for page dividers, and a pocket somewhere within the book. Other than those three things, the rest is up to you.
The deadline for this is August 31st and we will choose one person to receive a Prima Paintables  Paper Pack with other great goodies to go along with it.  
We can't wait to see what you come up with, and I will be making mine this coming week and get a sample up for you too see. Have fun and we love having you play along with us.
