Strength and Courage

This morning I will show you a cute little notebook that I altered. It was a quick 5 minute project that I made yesterday morning as a last-minute decision. Yesterday was a very long day - the first of what is sure to be many more to come. You see, I had to be someplace I really didn't want to be and I also knew that I might want to be taking a few little notes. As it turned out, I took quite a few notes, but it helped me...gave my hands something to do. Sorry I can't give you much more information than that, just know that it has to do with our daughter's accident.This is a little notebook that I just happened to have in my stash. We all have a stash of items that 'someday I'm gonna alter that', right?? I had picked it up for about 50 cents and put away till 'later'. Well, later finally came yesterday. It worked out perfect for what I needed. Something small to fit in my purse. I really didn't even know what I was going to put on it. I used some little scraps of Veranda paper that I had leftover from projects. Then I just used the words that I knew I would need yesterday. I just happened to have this flower stamp set (Smiles) right beside me (from a previous project that I just hadn't put away yet).

I love the way it turned out. Simple but yet, I love it! See? Projects don't have to take a lot of time! I literally made this in 5 minutes!

Happy Scrappin'
