Lil' Show Girl

I wanted to decorate something today so this hardcover notebook I picked up from Asda for £1 was just perfect. I really love how this turned out and think this will make great stocking fillers for the children's little friends for christmas.. This one is for me! I used these cute new High Hopes Stamps Lil' Show girl and her show horse and lots of stickles. The letters were cut on my Cricut Expression.

Hope your having a great Bank holiday weekend and see you Tuesday with my challenge card,

Hugs,
