Memories... Journal

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with one of my Christmas gifts I made for my friends and loved ones this year. It was relatively simple to make too, just took a little work :-) I started with a plain notebook from WH Smiths, Printable Canvas paper, Glue and Matt Varnish. I used Sarah Hurley 'I love Paris' kit for my background and elements. I cut the rose and 'Memories' sentiment with a white border round them. I glued them on my cover then varnished my notebook to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
