A Cocoa Diary

Hi there, and Happy Tuesday! Tuesday means...a brand new Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge!!! Oh I just love Tuesdays...lol. Today's challenge is to use Rick Rack...with a Cocoa image...of course. Well I decided to make an altered item today. I started with this...My DH is attending Capella U. right now, and they sent him this really nice little journal/notebook. Well, I thought it was plain and boring, so I had to "fix it"! So here is what I did.
Ok...so it is not so "manly" anymore...but I like it...lol. I used scor-tape to put the SEI papers onto the book. Then I used some white tape along the binding to "hide" the paper edges. I then used this adorable digi image called Write Soon Cocoa. I added a little color to Cocoa, and the pen. I tried to make it look like the pen writes pink too. I layered that onto another pink paper, and onto the journal. Then I added some pink Rick Rack, and the little oval sentiment. I hand wrote "my diary". I just love the way this turned out. Now...maybe I should start a diary...lol.

Head on over to the Crazy 4 Cocoa blog, and see what the other DT ladies have for you inspiration, and then link up your own Cocoa project using Rick Rack.

This is also for the following challenges: SEI Link party....HERE.
