Crafty Emma's Challenge..... Kick Off A New Challenge

Good morning everyone hope you are all fine & dandy this morning.
Well its Kick Off day with a new weekly challenge Crafty Emma's Challenge blog.
I am sooo excited about this Challenge blog & the other girlies I am working with are just FAB & very talented, I feel VERY honoured to be working with them all.
We are starting off the challenge with everyone's favourite 'Anything Goes' which basically means you can create whatever you like as long as its papercraft.
Here is the 1st prize.... a 12x12 My Minds Eye 'Oh La La' paper pack....mmm it certainly is ''Oh la la''

 Pop on over to the challenge blog to check out our talented DT's fabulous inspiring creations.
Here is mine....

It is a Notepad, this was an old hardback book, the insides were cut out & it has been covered in these gorgeous 'Pink Paislee' papers which are from Crafty Emma's Store, the tag is also from here as to are the pretty Dew Drops & the Pearl Pear Shaped Pin in the flowers. You really must get these Dew Drops they really are SOOOOO pretty, the camera doesn't do them justice. The images are from Kenny K & have been coloured with Promarkers which Emma also stocks. I also added metal corners to help protect the corners & also because it looks nice lol. The flowers are all from my stash, so is the doily which has been inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.
This is the inside of the notepad, again just covered in 'Pink Paislee'. Before the pads went on I glued on a piece of ribbon to provide an anchorage for a pen. The pads are actually free downloads from Graphic Garden they have loads of free printout things on there, its fab....

Here is the close-up of the images, I absolutely love Kenny K images they are fab to colour.
Well I think thats it from me we hope you can join in with our first challenge, 1st prize will be picked by random & there will also be a Top 3.
Come along & join in the fun.......its not to be missed!!!!

Bye-D-Bye for now
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
