Challenge Entry: Altered 2012 Diary

I received this 2012 Diary from my dear friend Hazel.  She knows I'll need it since I will be starting on a new job this coming year. Thanks, Hazel for being so thoughtful!



I thought of jazzing it up a bit.  So, I made a custom Christmas-themed cover for it.  Well, given a choice, I'd love it to be Christmas all year round! Hehehe...


The DPs are from Echo Park's Holly Jolly Christmas collection.  The stamped images are from Peachy Keen.  The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.  The ribbon is Print Ribbon.

I also added a little "bookmark" of some sort and put some golden pine cone buttons as a "charm".



I used this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop.



I am also entering my project to these challenges.
1. Little Red Wagon - Another Christmas Challenge
2. Little Darlings Challenge - Christmas
3. Tuesday Throwdown - For Someone Special
4. Top Tip Tuesday - Gifts

TOP TIP ALERT! 
If you're tired of run of the mill diaries or notebooks, then jazz it up with a little creativity! I made a custom cover for the diary a friend of mine sent me for Christmas and turned it to a unique notebook all my own.  :)
