It's An Altered Quirky Vintage Christmas!

Hi peoples! It's time for another Quirky Craft's challenge. It's Monica's turn to set the theme this fortnight and she would like to see...
Can't wait to see what you come up with! Our sponsor this time round is STITCHY BEAR STAMPS, and I've used this cute little fairy asleep under the Christmas tree on my altered project.
Woh! This was a bit out of my comfort zone!  And my computer is still doing weird things...but I think it's because it's short on memory! (aw....bit like me!) Hi Peoples! It's time for another....have I just said that!?! 
Okay, here's my make... I've turned an old dairy from 2004, never used, into a note book... A Christmas Wish List Note Book. 
I've used Magic of Christmas from our sponsors and also some
 vintage papers, which were free from a crafting magazine a few weeks ago.  I printed the digi image over that and glued it to the front of the plastic book cover and then re-punched the holes so the note book hinge would still work. I've used Distress Ink on all the edges. The ribbons are all left over Christmas vintage scraps. The tiny glass charms are really for wine glasses, but I thought they looked cute so added them too. The silver snowflake is on silver elastic and came off an old Christmas card. It's used to help keep the book closed and to mark the page (once I start filling it up with 'wish list goodies', that's every ones of course, not just mine!) I also had a go at covering a beer mat....not really happy with it  so I only made one, I've added a picture of that too. I've used Distress Ink on all the edges as well.
The Font I've used on the front of the booklet is called 'Christmas Card' You can Download it HERE 
It was based on the hand lettered opening titles of the film 'It's A Wonderful Life'. I used it in WordArt text and coloured it red on the computer. The digi has been coloured using Promarkers. That's it I think! Thank you for stopping by, I'm not here... so this is on timer. Hope to add this to some...
