then check out the chart to see how to participate in the challenge...
I made a Day Planner to place my design projects schedule in but you can use the same idea to make it into any type of planner that you wish.
I began by purchasing an inexpensive book from our local craft store for a dollar.
I took the front and back off the book and painted it with Black Paint from DecoArt...
Once the paint was dry I put the book back together and added my Graphic 45 ABC Primer papers to the front, back and inside covers. I inked all the edges with Chestnut Roan.  I added a fun border that I made from a EK Success Punch.
I distressed my journal block and mat using a distress tool, inked the edges and added it to the front of my Day Planner once I had my Tim Holtz Rub Ons in place using pop dots. I added Tim Holtz letters and numbers to the front along with a metal arrow. 
I added on small flower that I made using flower pieces from my stash along with adding a fun bow.
I went through my planner and wrote all the dates in with a LePen and added the month tabs to the side of the beginning of the month pages. 
I hope you enjoy my Day Planner and try making yourself one or even to make for a gift. I hope you play along with us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and make sure to check out the design team for more inspiration and REMEMBER: check out the new changes along with the chart for your project.
