Good morning and a Happy New Year to one and all. I hope you all had a lovely festive break and are all set to enjoy the coming year. I'm due back at work later this month (24th) so I am going to try and make the most of the time I have left with crafting and a bit of home decorating too. So with out further waffle lets get down to business. Today is the first challenge of the year over at Crafty Catz and the theme is 'Anything Goes' and it is the turn of our wonderful boss lady Carol to set the DT a twist and she very kindly gave us a nice easy one to start the year with 'add ribbon', don't forget you don't have to add the twist but we'd love it if you did join us.

So while I was wondering round looking for last minute gifts I saw this diary in Poundland and thought it was ideal for me to give it my personal touch. It's A6 in size and now I wish I'd got a few more and done them as gifts! lol
I started off with the sentiment stamp which is from a set called SteamPunk Dreams by Sam Poole from Creative Expression, the cogs, flying bugs and dressmakers form are also part of the set, the other stamps are from various different companies that I've bought over the years. All stamped images have been heat embossed with, sea foam, antique gold, bronze or black embossing powders.
I then added various funky fibres, and bits of ribbon to the spine and finished off with a few little charms. I don't think it will get mixed up with anyone elses diary! lol. I love how it turned out.
