Pretty Perfect Things -- featuring Bella. Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a journal book that I altered :) 

I got this book at IKEA for $2.00!  -- but the apples don't go with my PINK theme I am building on for my crafty area  -- so it had to be altered :) 

Here it is before -- 



And here it is after I altered it using Bella Blvd.'s Molly collection :) 

 






And the back :) 

 


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  6. Awww, it was cute before, but I LOVE your transformation, Julie! What a fun notebook this is! Loving all the pink and the peace border down the side. All the word strips are awesome, too. But my absolute favorite part are the mixed tapes down at the bottom. That totally makes me smile!

  34. So cute. It looks like a completely new book. I'm wondering how you got the paper under your binding. Guessing you unbound and then rebound it somehow.
