a quote book

I am always hearing funny things or awesome quotes or hear people use a talk that I like and I can never remember them later. Hence, the quote and thought book. These little notebooks are 79 cents at walmart and I love them! I use them for everything. I have one that I use for hair too. When I need new product, I write it down. So, I will carry this with me everywhere and when I hear something I want to remember or even just little thoughts I get throughout the day or things I don't want to forget, they will be written in this little notebook! 

I just traced out the notebook on some scrapbook paper, cut it out, and modpodged it on. For the flower, I cut out a few circles and wrinkled them, glued them together, added a button.

I printed out some words on the backside of the paper with the font sara's cute font from 

on the back, I printed the words "I am the one who writes my own story."

That's it! Hope you like it. It's easy enough that you all can make it. I already wrote my first quote in it: by : Kathleen H. Hughes
"Life often feels like a great pile of obligations, frustrations, and disappointments. But the Lord is there, always the same, His arms still outstretched. When we feel overwhelmed, we have to remember the peace He has spoken to us on previous occasions. His peace brings comfort and strength; the world cannot give that to us."
I love that quote.
