Altered Diary

Today I have an altered diary to show you I started off with this very plain and boring black diary which I bought for a £1 and this is what I turned it into.....

I made this diary for my DD Shannon who has a thing about all things nerdy and as soon as I saw this glasses paper I knew I wanted to use it for something for her having recently started work she needs a diary to write her shifts down in. I started off with sheet of kraft card which I cover the whole diary with. I then matted the glasses paper which comes from MME Cut Paste Flair pad onto a piece of black card. I have used some Basic Grey Candy Buttons in the corners to add a little bit of interest to them. 

The glasses are from a necklace which I took apart I have used a set of numbers from an old set of Alpha's which I had tucked away. I stuck the glasses down with glossy accents and then filled the lenses with it to give them a more realistic appearance. I added a couple of flat backed gems to the corners for a little bit of sparkle.

I would like to enter my diary into the following challenges:
Crazy For Challenges - Let's Frame It ( Hope the glasses count as a frame)
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything but a card
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything but a card
Craft My Life - Anything goes but no cards
Creative Creations Challenge - Sparkle & Shine ( gems are sparkly and the glasses are shiny)
