Holiday Journal

In my holiday journal I am doing a bit of art and some holiday photos. Thought I'd show you a few views with a little of both types of journaling.
I love this embellishment. I used a Technique Tuesday stamp to create the word banner and some punched out mini-stars.

I started this journal with Thanksgiving and you can see a bit of this page I created. Turkeys are from an older Hero Arts sets and I added these stamped words from Crafty Secrets.
I really enjoy making altered journals-it's cross between altered books, scrap books and art journaling.
So I stayed home yesterday with a weird cold-had been in my voice box for like 2 1/2 weeks and then moved up a bit so it blocked my ears. The echoing effect and some loss of balance...grrr. But they are on the improve and I did get a bunch of wrapping done while sitting home-actually it was quite a nice way to spend a sick day...the rainy fog outside, me in my sweatpants, wrapping and watching a couple of real old movies- White Christmas and  the Shop Around the Corner.
Was the perfect recharge kind of day.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Erika,

This is really cool! I'm trying to do something similar but am failing miserably. LOL. Some years are like that.

I especially love the hanging stars - it's lovely!
