Altered Composition Book

I belong to two card groups that do swaps.  I am always forgetting what swaps I have still have to do and have done already.  So I did some thinking and came up with the idea to create my very own swap book.  
My middle daughter is always bringing these home from school, so I have a ton of them.  I turned one of these into................
This was the finished project.  It was very easy to make.  I just covered the notebook with paper.  I colored in Stitchy's Home Tweet Home digi with color pencils and oms.  I then added a peel off border around the image and mounted it on some green fiber paper.  I printed out the "Tammy's Swap Book" in psp and colored it in with gel pens.  Again I added border peel offs around it.  I added a few butterfly and dragfly peel offs down the side and another border.  If you like Stitchy's image, you can get it here, along with many others. 

I am entering this into the following challenges.........
