Altered Journal

Just time for a quick post, before heading out the door. The Tilly's are playing in Omaha tonight, and I don't want to miss a minute! lol I'll have pic's to share tomorrow.
This afternoon I worked on this journal, using the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage, "FRAME IT" Stamps.

The minute I saw that stamp (on the cover)... I knew it was going to be one of my favorites. It's BEAUTIFUL and the detail is amazing!

This journal (from Target) has pockets, so I just did some notecard pages to slide inside.

This stamp set is so easy to "build" with. You can arrange the stamps in a number of different ways, to fit your page.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to put the muffins in , that I was taking to the Tilly's tonight. hmmmm.... I looked all over the house for a box I could alter..and nothing that would fit.... Finally I found this box full of Manilla file folders from Staples!.... lol Wah Lah! Altered Box for Muffins! lol

I looked at all my papers ( and trust me ... I have a few) to decide what reminded me of something Neely would like..... Of ... all the papers...this is it. lol I know she will like it. lol

Okay, out the door, to see my girl, sing her little heart out. ( I guess I forgot to give my ***PROUD AUNT ALTERT*** lol
Later Gators!

Love the colors as well as the stamps on this journal. Great idea too! You always stamp so perfectly, when I was paper scrapping I had to stamp on cardstock then cut them out for use! I was always making a mess.

Great journal. I have those papers too that you used on the muffin box. Lots of fun ones in that pack...cowboy jamies ones, robot ones, but I liked what you chose. ;)
