Another little gift!!!

Hey everyone, Emma here......

I had a bit of free time spare again over the last week so I thought I would get ahead and make another little Christmas gift.....{yes I know I said Christmas but it's great to be ahead with making gifts for everyone!!!!}
I LOVE making notebooks and they are so useful....

....I used some gorgeous papers by My Minds Eye, all the edges have been distressed, glittered and machine stitched, my ribbons and lace and the nobbly trim are from both Hobbycraft and the market...

...Another great thing about making your own special notebooks is that when they are used up you can just open the wires again and refill....FAB!!!!....

....I have used the super cute 'Lil Little Lolita Kellita' designed by Christina Dee and available from Tickled Pink Stamps in Rubber and the Digital images are always available from the 15th-21st of every month.  You should check out the rest of the 'Lil Little' collection HERE they are just so stinkin' cute!!! Now......I have actually watercoloured my image with distress inks....and WOWWWWwww I really enjoyed it so much!!!  I am now addicted and can't I will have lots more watercoloured images coming your way soon!!! {I also really NEEEEEEEEEEED every single colour of the distress inks now too hehehehe!!!!}.....

.....The large rose I made myself from the Spellbinders Rose Creations Dies which I LOVE, I also made the small twisted fabric flower from some seam binding and the other flowers are a mix from Prima, Wild Orchid and Hobbycraft. Everything is glittered as always heehee!!!

Thanks so much for looking and for the gorgeous comments you leave me...
