Birthday Bling



Tomorrow is my friend Ella's birthday and though she has a main present from me ... I like to give little 'extras' as a surprise ... one of the things she needed was a new note book and I love to make or alter note books .... But the one I bought was just too pretty to cover and it was also so very appropriate ... she loves to shop! My best shopping buddy in fact ... and she loves a bit of bling ... So I decided to 'bling' up the note book and this is the result ...



Ok ...  so I should have taken a picture before I altered it ( duh! ) but I guess you can see the added bits ... anything that sparkles, shines and of course the lace, ribbon, buttons and doily (courtesy of Chriss) ....
are all added ... and I decided to carry on the same theme for her card ... well, sort of ... 


I am truly loving this stamp set from Crafty Secrets ... and it was available here in the UK! You get a lot of stamps in one set too...
So now I have a lot of wrapping to do before tomorrow ... and before I forget ... take a look at the gift bag ... Shop bought ... well,  for £1 I certainly could not have made it better ...


Till soon

Ros

Ella is a lucky girl with a friend like you. I love your notebooks and I am so so happy with the one you made for me. (Ahhhh the blue colors in it....)
This is beautiful. I love the Crafty Secrets stamps. You did a fabulous job with them.
The notebook and card are both breathtaking...
And the gift bag is definitely a bargain.
Have fun tomorrow!XXX
