Crafty sentiments blog hop and new release!!

Hi folks its a celebration day today! We are celebrating the release of the new Amy digis by having a crafty sentiments blog hop and an Amy challenge. If you have come from the crafty sentiments challenge blog then you are in the right place as I am first on the blog hop list! Our challenge this wk is Amy! There is a fabulous freebie on the challenge blog of the most adorable Amy and you can make whatever you like, however you like, as long as you have that Amy on your creation.
I have altered a notebook for my blog hop project with my cutesy Amy digi.

I have used these cheap £1 notebooks from Asda with openable binders. I have covered it with Tim Holtz stunning shabby chic paper and have used MS doily punch to create a bordered edge. My sparkly ribbon is from hobbycraft and my gorgeous flowers mulberry crafts. My fabulous butterfly is incredibly sparkly but the sun doesn't really show it, that was an ebay purchase. My adhesive gems are from stash and my stamped butterflies are all hampton arts.
I have coloured Amy with prismas and covered the back of my notebook with the lined Tim Holtz shabby chic paper.

I have used some fibres and a metal butterfly charm on the binding and have created a monogram charm as this is for my niece Kira, for her birthday this wk. I took a simple chipboard letter and used first glossy accents which I used my heat gun on and then my shimmer paint. I got the idea from Janet who used glossy accents under her crackle paint to create a much better crackle effect but I didn't have crackle paint in the colour I wanted so used some blonde moments shimmer paint and actually really like the effect. I then added a metal eyelet to create the charm.

The prize for this wks challenge is 3 digis from the CS store! Not only that but there are 5 digis to be won on some of the blogs around the hop so don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning a digi from the store!
From here you need to pop along to Doreens blog to continue the hop!
I would like to enter my notebook into Cupcake crafts monochrome challenge, Lollipop crafts butterflies, Lexis ribbons with no bows and knots, Spoonfull of sugars ribbons, gems and flowers, Tuesday throwdowns anything but a card, flutterby wednesdays open challenge, ladybug crafts ink mono challenge and paper shelters flower power challenge.
Thanks for coming by here again! Hugs to all
