Shabby Desk Diary

Hi there!
Well our weather has sure warmed up ... almost 11C (51F) - wet and dull but warmer ... So that's a good thing ...
Today I have a shabby desk diary to show you which is my DT project for this weeks' challenge over at Papercraft Star 
The challenge is to use a frame 

.. And my diary

I wanted a diary that was quite large ... so I could write all the anniversaries and birthdays in ... I had so much fun making this .. The best part is decorating the cover

Can you see the pretty frame? That and the postcards are from my embellishment box ... not sure where I got them ... The papers were all from my scrap box ... even the flower is made from pieces of fabric I had over

That gorgeous flower brad came from my friend Kirsty 
You can see just how thick this diary is ...

That's because I printed a page for each week and backed them onto thin card ... I made the pages on my computer and filled in the 'dates' afterwards ... took a while I can tell you!

My fellow DT members have lots more inspiration for you ... hop over to the Blog and take a look ... 
We do have a couple of new rules for our challenge - nothing major - so please bear these in mind when you play along ... I'm looking forward to seeing how you use your frames!

Thanks so much for visiting me
Have a beautiful day and keep safe
