Paper Players Challenge #59 - a pink notepad

Today I'm back with another challenge - this one in shades of pink.
I had an appointment to take my Dad for a check up - it had the potential to be not so good - BTW it turned out great. So I knew I wanted to take some notes and my mood wasn't the best - nothing cheers me or settles my nerves like stamping. Paper crafting in general but stamping in particular.
 So about a half hour before I had to leave, I grabbed some SU! pink goodness. Note: SU! c/s is a must for this project cuz it's so thick it is sturdy. I took out my favorite versamark, clear embossing powdeer and Vintage Vogue.
I didn't follow a pattern - although I'm sure there are some on the web. I just cut my 8.5 x.11 cardstock to alittle over 8 inches (thats how long the notepad is). I placed the notepad on the cardstock and lightly marked where the score lines should be. As I didn't have alot of time - I kept the decorations CAS.

Sometimes I'm such a computer dummy its ridiculous :)   I can't believe how easy it was to put the above Challenge pix on the blog - in the past challenges I've only put a link cuz I thought I didn't know how ----all I had to do was copy and paste ---man
Thanks for visiting!!
