It's Time for the December Challenge at PaperCubed and WOYWDW!

The first day of the month means it's time for another 3D challenge at PaperCubed (P3)!  Our challenge this month is to create an organizer.  I think our DT leader, Kim, had Christmas organizers in mind and I truly did try but my mojo wouldn't go there....soooooo,  I decided to make an organizer to give our granddaughter along with a book we got her for Christmas.  She can keep track of the books she reads each month as well as the things she has to do...like dance lessons and clubs. 

She's a girly girl so I chose girly girl papers from SEI Chick-a-dee line.  I think she'll love the funky little birds dancing across the papers and all the sewing around the edges. 

I added a pocket to the front and slipped a little bookmark inside.  Check out those funky fibers! (Basic Grey Two Scoops)

Inside are lined and numbered month by month pages.

I also remembered to take a couple of shots for Stamping Ground's What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday.  Here's how I started late in the evening....see I did have Christmas in mind.

Here's what I woke up to this morning:

Time to clean up!!

Remember you have all month to participate in the PaperCubed ChallengesPop over to see the rest of the awesome (and I do mean awesome!) DT samples and to see what this month's prize is.

Don't forget to pop over to WOYWDW for some workdesk fun.  It'll make you feel better.  ;-)

Pin It!
