A shameless CASE!

I took this lock, stock and barrel from the front of the September 2009 Stampin' Success! This little book is to go into a goody bag that I'm putting together for this year's winner of the CPJHSA H&H Tack Shop Equitation Medal.

My daughter won it last year and has been asked to present the trophy to this years' winner. Historically, the previous years' winner gives something to the new winner. Last year, my daughter got a dozen roses. This year, I"m putting together a goody bag from one of my favorite shops, The Preppy Pink Pony.

The PPP is usually at most of the horse shows that we go to and all the girls (young and old) love the preppy things that they've got: ribbon belts, cute cell phone covers, ribbon flip-flops, purses, monogrammed everything. I thought that it would be nice to put some cute stuff in a little Scout tote with this book. I'm also going to make a tag with Party Pony and the Top Note die that my daughter can sign.

The following upload is the front page of the book. I don't know about the original, but I covered the back and inside covers with a sheet from The Write Stuff ds. The stars are from the star stamp in Extreme Elements and covered with a clear token from Build-a-Brad. The front and back covers are adhered and top-sealed with ModgePodge.

Stamps: Extreme Elements, Gallery, Itty Bitty Backgrounds

Paper: Confetti Cream, The Write Stuff ds, Razzleberry Lemonade ds

Ink: Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry

Accessories: On Board Timeless Type and 5x5 Art Journal, tokens from Build-a-Brad, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Dusty Durango polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, ModgePodge, sponges

This is AMAZING! And the funny thing is I was just admiring that cover last night thinking how cool it looked so I recognized yours right away. Awesome! I'm starting to lean towards getting that Extreme Elements set every time I see it used too. I've liked it since I fist saw it but wasn't sure how I'd use it. Thanks for the inspiration!
