Altered chipboard notebook - D

Hello everyone

For our new challenge over at Altered Eclectics I killed 2 birds with one stone,  figuratively speaking of course lol.  I colleague at work has just received promotion so decided to make her a notebook as a gift.  I actually dusted off my Bind it All lol.  I used chipboard for the covers. I used a little paper and stamped script on it and then used a brick mask with crackle paste.  I coloured it using paint, sprays and gold rub.  The key chain, pen nibs, key, lock, corners and lettering are from my stash.  I used vellum inside front and back with the script stamp on it.  I just love my script stamp.  I smothered it completely using mod podge (not the pages inside lol)

Well that's it really but I am going to overload you all with pics lol.
