Hi Ladies
Today I have something different for you to see, a note book I made, just fancied a change from a card and you know what they say, a change is as good as a rest J I really enjoyed making this and shall be doing some more, I used one of the Bugaboo images I coloured last week with Pro Markers and Copic pens.

Close up of the image and one of the flowers

The papers are Basic Grey which I distressing with ink called Old Newspaper, I cut some of the flowers out to decorate the front, glittered and added gloss accents to them to make them shine. Also adding gloss accents to the bows and the frill of her dress.

The ribbon is a mixture of oddments I had in my scrap box, I think they are Bo –Bunny, to finish I added a sentiment cutting it out with a nesstie, oh the punch is a MS one.

I also added paper to the inside back and front and the outside cover at the back, I hope you like my first notebook.

 Challenges I would love to enter:

Bugaboo - Anything Goes

Cropstop - Shine

Charisma Cards - Bling and Sparkles

Dutch Dare - Distressing

Stamp Something - Use a Digi - I used a Bugaboo digi

One Stop Crafts - Spots and Dots

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything but a Card

Spoonful of Sugar - Texture - I hope this notebook qualifies

Sir Stampalot - Ladies and Fashion

I have a full week this week as I am busy getting things organized as Brian is going away on a business trip, geez I am going to miss him, but I plan to catalogue the rest of my stamps and mess about in my craft room while he is away.
I have to go out for a little while but I shall be round to see you all when I get back, it’s that thing called grocery shopping that has to be done lol.
Well that’s it for today and thank you for popping by to see me, I really appreciate it, I hope you all have a great day.
