Sketch Challenge ~My Craft Spot Notebooks

Hello everyone, It's another fantastic Monday which brings a new challenge at My Craft Spot. This week is a "sketch" challenge.
Below is the sketch and I can't wait to show you what I created!

My daughter has gone back to college and I'm sending a care package to her and decided to include a gift for her and her new roommates. I made notebooks last fall see that post -HERE. The notebooks can be used for grocery list, notes to friends etc. My daughter doesn't really have 8 roommates, I'm just made a few extras :)
I used two of My Craft Spots stamp sets, Stamping All Around Spring and Friends & Neighbors. The metal dies I used are, Tiny Doilies and Small Alphabets, I also uses various colors of Crinkle Ribbon. All are available at My Craft Spot -HERE.
 For the narrow note pads, I bought a pack 8 1/2" x 11" notepads from an office store and took it to my local copy store and had them cut the pads in to three long equal sizes, it was very inexpensive.
The cardstock base measures 6 1/4"x 11", scored at 3" and 3 1/4".
Notice the words "Enjoy it" on the inside bottom of the cover, it's from the Friends and Neighbors stamp set.
The doily and circle are cut from the Tiny Doilies metal dies, the flower is from the Small Alphabet Metal Dies, then added a rhinestone to the center of the flower.  
The phrase is stamped using the Stamping All Around Spring stamp set.
The long patterned paper and long scalloped green cardstock were cut using my silhouette cameo, my own design. I placed crinkle ribbon down the center if the patterned paper, the colors I used are Sky Blue, Petal Pink and Buttercup.
I love these butterflies, they are cut from the Small Alphabet metal die.
The phrase is from Friends and Neighbors stamp set.
