Fabulous Freebie Friday!

My Fashionista bear has a friend - Fabulous bear. She enjoys all the finer things in life and loves to be pampered! She, too, made it on a cover of her own notebook, complete with a caption that says "You're absolutely Fabulous."

"Wouldn't this be a fabulous Freebie Friday giveaway?" she said. Yes - absolutely fabulous.

So, that's how today's Freebie Friday giveaway came to be. Isn't she a cutie? Here's a close up of her, so you can check out all her bling and accessories:
She's got a custom made square-neck tank top that I fashioned for her out of the t-shirt die cut. I simply drew in the outline on the reverse side and cut it to the shape. Her little black flower accent is made out of a scrunched up 1/2" circle punch with a brad in the middle. And her belt is black grossgrain ribbon with a square rhinestone belt buckle. Her outfit was made out of the same Night and Day DSP that I used for the fashionista bear from the other day. Did you notice her cute little herringbone peep-toe flats? She is just stylin'! I think I have found my calling as a BAB dress designer! Heehee. Here's the recipe:
{Absolutely Fabulous Bear Notebook}
All supplies SU!
*Cardstock: Pretty In Pink, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla; Night and Day and Raspberry Lemonade DSP.
*Inks: Melon Mambo Classic pad, Basic Black marker
*Dies: Stampin'Up Bear Bigz die
*Accessories: Scallop Border, 1/2" circle, modern label punch; square rhinestones, black vintage brads, black grosgrain ribbon, melon mambo polka dot grosgrain ribbon.
To play in today's Freebie Friday, just leave me a comment along with your blog website or email address on this post by midnight on Sunday, September 6th! You can comment about anything or answer this question: What are your plans for this Labor Day Weekend? Then, come back on Monday to find out who the lucky winner is!

Thanks for stopping by and playing - good luck! Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday, Rose!

This is so adorable! The details are awesome:) My plans for Labor day weekend...tomorrow I'm throwing a bridal shower for my sister-in-law. If the weather allows, I plan to spend the rest of the long weekend at the pool in total relaxation. I've been so busy with this wedding, making invites for the shower & wedding and favors for the shower, that I've barely had any time for anything else. When the shower is over, I plan to take a break until Tuesday, when I will start making 120 wedding favors...

I hope you have a great weekend and Labor Day!

I am totally in love with the BAB die! Can't wait to get my hands on it. Our plans include my husband painting the dining room and my daughters and me escaping the house while he does it. We might head to the zoo on Monday or find something interesting to do around town. Thanks for offering the great blog candy!

My labor day plans consist of watching movies on tv and doing homework!! Yes teachers have homework too! LOL School started 2 weeks ago and so far i am barely keeping myself prepared for each day! So i hope to spend some time actually getting ahead on some lesson plans.

Oh Rose this is absolutely gorgeous. I just love your blog and check it almost daily. My husband, kids and I are planning a school shopping trip to the outlets stores close by. The kids have outgrown so many of their winter clothes so we need to do some shopping. I just like shopping (who doesn’t?). Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
