The Paper Shelter #20

Hi there. A really easy one for you this week at The Paper Shelter the theme is "Anything Goes"

I fancied doing something a bit different, so i bought a cheap note book from The Works and turned it into a Journal.

I like to write my thoughts down when things are upin the air, helps me to make some sort of sence of things if you read it back a day or two later.

I used Mushroom Castle from TPS this week, coloured with copics, 7 Gypsies Paper, I made a frame out of two square Delish chipboard frames that I coloured black, the sentiment is a Delish Rub On, Journal is Go Kreate Die Cuts, EK punch swirls and some red gems, I topped it with a bit of gold velvet ribbon I pinched of my Sister
