Whiff of Joy post it note holder

Whiff of Joy are running a challenge to make a post it note holder on Stamp out Alzheimer's site this week to raise money for this worthy cause. Here is my noteholder. I have gone for a vintage feel (seem to be really loving this kind of look as you've probably gathered lately LOL but then I've always loved anything distressed!) I made the paper myself using the strawberry stamps from the summer kit and one of the swirls from the spring swirls kit. I also made the rose from crumpled paper as on my last card. The lace my Mum gave me the other day...she found it under a cabinet and thinks she has some more gorgeous is it!?!?! and free!!!! I used another summer kit stamp, the gorgeous Willow with strawberries. I made a pencil holder for inside and I have made a toggle fastening out of some mint green elastic and a huge pearl button. Not sure if I'm entirely happy with it to be honest...was having one of those nights last night where you just can't seem to get into what you're doing. Check out the site and have a go yourself!!

My paper rose made from crumpled paper , I added Qchalk to the edges of the petals.

Hi Jane
At last!!! i have had a real problem with this link it kept kicking me out. Seem to be in now though, thanks for visiting my blog, i tried to comment earlier, i love this jane your doing it again! fantastic creations i love the strawberry stamp and paper.
To make your copyright mark, when you have your piccie on the pc right click and open with paint.your photo will come up large. click on large blue A that opens 2 boxes click bottom box a cross appears on screen open and make a box where you want the mark. Open tools for your font and change colours etc. i have to use a seperate box for each. click on save and its done. I,m still working with this as it drives me mad having to do it everytime there must be a way to save and just paste on photo.
Anyhow hope you understand this just let me know if your stuck. Its all trial and error.

Hugs Di xx
