DIY Notepad Cover - Recycle, Reduce, Repurpose

I am definitely a "SHE" - 
Sidetracked Home Executive (via Flylady)!
Stationery supplies make my heart happy; 
notebooks, journals, papers, pens, markers, 
file folders, planners, etc.

So when hubby & I went to some local 
yard sales this past weekend and I saw 
a fellow "SHE" selling a portion of her 
stash, I was like...

Then during a little crafty time, 
I created a pretty cover for one
of the notepads I had picked up.

These lovely papers are from Echo Park,
For the Record, they were in my scrap
box along with their stickers & trim.

However, the scraps weren't quite wide
enough to cover my pad so I pieced some
together. It worked out perfectly with a
little washi tape to hide things inside! (:

I even found a little 
resin flower to match!

I now have a pretty covered 
notepad for my purse...

I like when everything coordinates!!
