Mousie Monday

I have been busy getting ready to start the school year and I bought this really great planner at Wal-mart. It had a plain cover, so I decided to dress it up a little bit. I chose to use one of the new House Mouse stamps called Scuttle School. It seemed so appropriate.

The patterned paper is from my stash, I am not sure, but I think it may be DCWV. I sponged all the edges in tea dye distress ink. I distressed the edges of the tag and sponged Tea Dye distress ink on it as well, then used my Dymo labeler to print "Mom's Planner". I didn't have the exact color label I wanted, so I colored it with caramel alcohol ink. I finished it off by using a flower eyelet and tying a piece of hemp thread and a pencil charm to the tag.
Here you can see the detail of the stamp. Super cute, huh? The image is colored with Copics and I matted it on Bazzill cardstock. I then punched a border with the Fiskars Diamond punch. I used turquoise and lavender spica glitter pens on the flowers to give them a little bit of sparkle. Now, I don't have to look at a boring planner cover.
Have a blessed day!
