Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia midway post

Hello everyone how are you all?
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I am having a lovely one as it was my birthday Saturday & I had lovely pressies, crafty stuff & the best part lots of cuddle & hugs & I Love You's from my family & we spent the day together. I also had another birthday present later in the day which was the icing on the cake so to speak, yes even after I had birthday cake lol....but I will tell you about that another day ;-)

Ok so today I'm here to remind you of the challenge over at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia & the challenge is...........ANYTHING GOES!!
 The other week I got my new stamps & I coloured 2 up straight away to make a notebook for my granddaughter.
Payton loves pink, purple, glitter, tulle (ballerina's skirt), fairies & UNICORNS....yep you know what is coming dont you lol
I brought a cheap plain notebook from a shop & decorated it. I painted it with white gesso first & then started the fun part.
This is the pad I brought, its quite a thick pad so it will last her a know 5 year olds they can write 4 words on a piece of paper then start on a new piece lol.

All dies on the top of the pad except the circle & scalloped circle are Magnolia, some are from Doohickey Volume 9. However the die-cut going across the top of the pad is called 'Celebration Lace', I've had this die a while but you can get here if you would like it.

In the pocket I made a tag with a CC Designs die  & stamped just the unicorn on it & coloured it with distress ink refills & then covered it with Wink Of Stella........unfortunately it dulled it down a bit which is a shame as it looked so bright & colourful. However Payton still liked it & the tag can be used as a book mark for her reading book. I cut & glued 2 tags together to make it nice & firm.

Both Magnolia stamps are from the I Believe In Unicorns collection, I stamped together 'Unicorn Tilda' & 'Unicorn With Text' with my Tim Holtz stamping platform.........OMW that thing is fantastic & so much better than my other one.
I cannot remember which watercolour paper I used, it was either Daler Rowney or Langton. I coloured them with distress ink refills & added stardust stickles to the unicorns hoofs, horn & hair & to Tilda's hair ribbons, hearts & buttons.
I also added pearl dots with a pearl pen. I cut them out using LLLC Stitched circle die & then backed it onto circle & scalloped circle cut out with spellbinder dies.

Papers used are from one of my favourite collections, Maja Design Vintage Summer & I used a mixture of 12x12 & 6x6 paper. All was distressed a little & machine sewn, I added lace form my stash & some pink Melissa Frances Tulle which I've had for soooo long. I also added a string of ivory pearls along the top & the top of the tulle.
I added cheese clothe & corrugated cardboard painted with white gesso under the image & the letters spelling out the name are from Pion Design.
I added lots of lace & waxed string the binder rings at the top of the pad & added 2 charms, the one on the top of the pad says 'Believe' & I added a charm to the tag of a fairy. So this pad has all of Payton's favourites & she loved I'm pleased to tell you.
