Titi Name Plate

This is a name plate I made for my mother. She loves to scrapbook and was making name plates for some of her youtube friends. However, she did not have one.

Altered Libreta (Notebook)

 The biggest sale day of the year is coming up. Wouldn't it be nice to remember what you're suppose to purchase-- in a fashionable way? As far as I can remember, my family has been participating in Black Friday. However, before we knew this day by such name we called it Midmorning Maddness. The problem on this day is not what to get, but recalling what one was suppose to purchase. This year I am ready! I created this beautiful Altered Libreta*** (notebook) to help me remember and prep for the day. 

***No new paper was harmed in the making of this notebook. All scraps!
