Pretty Little Planner for my Sewing Friend!

I made up this pretty little ASG 2011 Calendar of events/planner for my friend Tina.
I love digital scrapping, and playing with "real" paper too.
In this project I was able to combine both techniques. (FUN!)
I hosted the Christmas party for our group in December and she came over early and helped me out, (even making the frosting for our Red Velvet cupcakes, Yum!) After the meeting I promised to give her a copy of our plans for the upcoming year.
But, being me - I couldn't just jot them down and hand them over.
I had to do it "pretty"

Inside I created a page for each month/meeting with the program for that evening.
I also added pages for a supply list and notes for each meeting.
Below are a few of my favorite pages:

(that was sewing room organization, presented by me!) :o)

(Flower pounding - doesn't that sound awesome?!)

The back
I fussy cut the butterfly and inked the edges. It came out so pretty!

Somethings are just too sweet to hide in a bag or with paper wrapping.
So I just added a ribbon for presentation.
I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow at our Fitting group!

I love the papers and embellishments I used on this project.
They are so rich and warm, and they printed out bea-yoo-tifully!
All my digital scrapping supplies come from Scrapgirls, and most items used in this project were from the Noteworthy Collection.
One of my favorite things to do is make organizers (go figure!) planners, or any kind of "book".
In the past I used to buy an Owire bound book, take it apart and recover/re-do it, then put it all back together again. My friend got me hooked on making these when we were stationed together in WA.

For Christmas I got a Bind-it-all (Yay!) and this is my first project!
Now I don't have to do the disassemble - reassemble thing anymore.
(any one else just hear No disassemble #5 in the back of their head?)
