Altered Shopping List Notepad

I made this cute little notepad out of a file folder for a future swap I am in.  I love making these because they are so cute and so functional, as inside, there is a 4x6 pad of paper, perfect for making grocery lists.  There's also a pocket on the left panel, which is perfect for including coupons or housing the recipes for the next week.  I love how this one turned out and I hope my parnter will too!
The designer paper is Bittersweet by Basic Grey, and this was perfect because I knew I wanted my project to be pink and brown (starting to become one of my favorite color combinations!).  I used Chef Tilda and the Rolling Pin by Magnolia and used copics to color them both.  I added stickles to the trim of her hat and dress.  I used my Spellbinders, Prima roses, and pink bling by Queen.  I also used a magnetic disk by Basic Grey to keep my project closed (I LOVE these things!)  Here's a close-up of Tilda:

Finally, here is a picture of the inside of the notebook, with the pocket on the left and the pad of paper on the right.  I hope you like it!
