Don't leave anything alone ;P

Why leave something alone when you can spend 2 minutes to alter it and make it better?

Natalie here :) I can't leave anything alone when I think I can make it prettier, more organized, more functional, or original for me.

This is short and sweet, and doesn't really need any instruction.

I found a little calender/planner at JoAnn's for .50 cents... (I bought 3 cause I had this idea instantly.) (They also had lots of great buttons on clearance/discontinued... might be worth knowing.)

I removed the puppy planner from it's clear plastic cover (like a check book cover) and I used double sided tape to attach beautiful paper over the puppies. (I have a thing for green)

I then trimmed the paper neatly and slid the new planner back into the plastic cover.

Big difference, and now I want to use it!
Plus... I don't like my stuff to have words on the front telling me what it is. Ya I might need that information when I'm looking to buy it, but from that point after... I know what it is.
Happy Altering :P
