Vintage or Shabby Chick + DT CALL

Hi again,

Back again with a new challenge over at 

We got two fantastic sponsors for you this month

A paper pad and 2 sheets of images
$10 voucher

our theme this month is picked by Vickie
and she chosen


I have altered a notebook this time and made it into a recipe book.

I used a image that I got as a freebie from Create with TLC. Isn´t she gorgeous?
I tear of the edges and then inked them with a brown chalk.

I destressed all edges to make them look older. I used an edge scraper and then inked them with brown chalk.

I used a few different ribbon, strings and laces to add some interest to the binding. Also added a few different die cuts, charms, paper clips.

Hope you liked it! I had planed to give it away but now I´m not sure that I can.

Now it´s time for you to pop over to
to see what my team mates cooked up for you.

We are also looking for some new team mates.
So we got a DT CALL
are you the one we looking for?
