Shelly's Images Challenge

Hello friends!
Time for another fun challenge at Shelly's Images!  
Today's theme is:  SEW HAPPY!

And, we are featuring Shelly's digi image called 'BLUE BIRDS'.

I decided to make an altered composition book for someone moving into a new home.  This could help them keep organized by keeping notes on all those MANY things that need taken care of while making a move into a new home.  I've even added a pocket on the inside panel for a few envelopes in case they need to quickly snail mail a message to their realtor or family member.

The background paper used on this project is digital paper from the Crafty Secrets 'Barber Shop Digital Kit'.  After printing out my image in a large format, I colored it using Prismacolor Markers and SU Watercolor Pencils/Blending Pen. Once colored, I scanned it & saved as a .jpg file as well as a .png file.  Once I did that, I used Microsoft Word to add my image directly onto my digital paper then printed.

Other products used on this Altered Composition Book are:
Papers:  Medium Blue cardstock, Brown cardstock, garden green cardstock
Accessories:  Creative Memories Corner Rounder, Martha Stewart Icicle Border Punch (used for grass), Cheery Lynn Designs B123 Victorian Picket Fence die, Cheery Lynn Designs B117S Fanciful Flourish Small, Recollections purple paper rose, Purple Zig Marker for faux stitching, ScorTape

A few other qualifying challenges:
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
Crafting for all Seasons - Dies and Punches
Creative Moments - Shades of Blue
Ruby's Rainbow #48 - In the Garden
Perfect Sentiments - Floral Fantastia
Through The Classroom Door - Anything Goes

I hope you'll stop by and join in our challenge fun!
