Altered writing pad

Hello my lovlies! How are you? I hope you are enjoying these lovely summer days! It's been pretty hot here so I've been staying inside as much as possible and eating lots of watermelon (love it) to cool me down a little. It's a plus site to all these heat too - since it's too hot to do anything outside I can be inside and do a lot of crafting. :D

Today a new challenge started at the Creafty ribbons challenge blog and the theme chosen by the sweet Gretha is to use one of more circles on your card/project. My teamies all made wonderful things using circles so I hope you will hop to the challenge blog and check them out. I decided to alter a small writing pad.

So from this

became this

How do you like the transformation? I'm pretty happy with the result! I used some leftover pieces of my scrap paper for this project and my sweet mini baby Tilda stamp, which I coloured with distress inks. The picot edge circle and the "regular" circle dies are from Spellbinders. On the picot edge circle I drew some dots with my Viva decor pearl pen. I used this pen to make some dots around Tilda and on butterflies too. The butterflies were made with my craft punch and the gems are from my stash. I used several different ribbons on my project and they are all from Crafty ribbons - I used white french rose ribbon, baby sheer dots pearl pink ribbon and baby 3 mm pearl pink ribbon.

I would ike to enter my project to the following challenges:
The paper nest dolls: Die cuts
