Decorated note books

After almost 4 years out of "blog-land", today I am coming back with a simple but nice project I've been working lately.
In Costa Rica (where I live), school begins on February and during the last two weeks I have been decorating school notebooks, (for my daughter and also for her friends) It is a work I love to do since two years ago. It allows me to earn some money while I do something I like to. However, after about 30 notebooks,I start feeling out of inspiration, so I decided to came back and visit my blog to see if I can find something that I could recreate... and you should know how this is, I started reading my old posts, then the comments, then visiting old friend's blogs, memories from time ago when I used to post and play with my card makers/internet friends .... Once I get into the sites,  I remember that nothing helps me more in my hunt for inspiration as craft challenges.
So, long story short, here I am, entering the note book I decorate based on the Tic Tac Toe challenge from The Paper Players.

I decided to go with die cuts, pink, girly.
Actually, the inspiration came so fast and allowed me to decorate two instead of just one notebooks. So here is my creations and hope you like them.

The first one featuring my cricut old cartridges Create a Critter and A child/s year, pink every where and of course super girly glitter for he small flower that makes the dot over the i in "friends".

The second one looks like Valentine's day is around the corner. Again my cricut cartridges come into help. I used Sweethearts. Pink papers and a super cute ribbon I had since I can't remember.

I am also entering my projects in the FCCB: Ch. 269 Valentine's Day

If somebody is reading me after so many years without a post, THANK YOU!!!! and please if you don't mind, leave me a comment, it will be great to hear from someone out there.
