2 Tone Page & A Secret Ingredient

I’ve spoken before about how I love to make pages using mostly one color. (I wrote some posts about that here and here.) On this page I wanted to mostly use pink and green because of the colors of the shirts my mom and daughter were wearing.

I wanted to share this page with my readers just because it’s fun and I liked it, but I also wanted to share one of my favorite new ingredients I’ve been using in my pages.

See the little piece of paper I used for journaling? It’s a sticky note! I have a few small ones that I got in a package, and they are super easy to use.

They are from Maggie Holmes, and they come in a package of three different pads, each with 10 sheets. They are only $1.79 on www.createforless.com, which is where I got them. They have ton of different ones.


My favorite ones, though, are somewhere I never would have thought of looking: Cost Plus World Market.

I was looking on their site for Christmas gifts and came across these fun sticky notes. They have some really fun packages that come in varieties and multiples. Since Christmas is coming up I’m going to buy them as a gift, and after the holidays for myself!
