Blog Challenge -- Alter It!

Believe it or not, it took me all weekend to make this.....you see, I'm down with flu. YUK!....and yes, I even had a flu shot. First year it didn't work for me. So, I'm exhausted, and working with "fuzzy brain," and barely functioning.
Each time I began to work on this I needed to sit down before I accomplished much. So, it's not my best work....and I made a few mistakes.....AND I was going to add Barely Banana Mini Brads at the bottom of each of the flowers (they would work perfectly!).....but didn't remember them until I went to photograph this! So, please use your imagination and forgive my feeble attempt this week.
Our Group Mom, Lisa, has made a few of these, and this was the perfect chance to make one for myself. This is a Post-It Note pad holder.....wouldn't this just be adorable to carry in your purse?!! The covers are chipboard coasters that are covered with the fabulous SAB DSP, Delicate Dots. The wider ribbon is also a SAB favorite: the Ribbon Bundle...obviously, the So Saffron Wide Grosgrain.
I do have a few things around to share and will try to add things to the Blog as the week goes along....and as my energy level will allow. Hopefully, the flu will be short lived....maybe that shot will help after all?
Stamps: Sweet Stems, Mini Note Kit
Inks: Basic Black
CS: Whisper White
Markers: Certainly Celery, So Saffron, More Mustard, Basic Black
