Shabby Art Planner

Evening... and I do hope you're all ok
This post should have been done a week or two ago
but I have been working lots of hours not leaving many hours in the day for me
and the dreaded housework.. and what with the run up to Christmas in full swing
making it so much harder to find me time
but hey I am here and I have a Christmas Planner to show you

Over at the Shabby Art Boutique the lovely Kerryanne 
shared with everyone a printout to make a organizer for Christmas
Now as soon as I saw it I had downloaded and made it
here is what I did 
Picture Heavy.... !!!
I made the book from cream card stock and used
Tim Holtz distress ink to do all the edges and make it look old and shabby
Took me ages
I used Paul's huge stapler to staple together..
as it is tougher than a normal one..and the staples are thicker
and it is holding it together nicely
 onto the book
Front cover
 All I did here was add some holly punches and gems for sparkle
 First two pages.. made to look old and shabby
the only thing written is the NEC.. post on that to follow
I added a raindeer charm to one corner just for interest..
 The next two are the card list pages..I knew I wouldnt have enough room on the one sheet
so I have two sheets for the list and also made a pocket for a tag which also has room for more names
 Oh and I also made a tiny envelope and placed it in the corner.
 Gift list... as you can see I have taken pictures before I started writing in
 All I did with these two was to add a shiny bauble peel off
 This is the back.. you can not see it on the photo but I have put lots of stickled on the tree

Anyway I thinik I can link this up to a friday thing over on Kerryannes blog so that is what I am going to do
I will also enter this into
Make it Monday.. Linky

Thanks for stopping by.. am off to do my second post of the night xx
