Bloggers Challenge Week 7

I've used Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps "Fairies". I took a 1-subject $1 notebook from Target and altered it. I attached SU CS using the red tape. I didn't bother with taking off/on the spiral, this was a first altered journal and I wasn't sure how to do it? I cut a piece of CS to fit the front. I was going to put ribbon down the whole spiral but as I attached the ribbon, I just liked it in the corner. I masked the fairy and used SU "Peaceful Wishes" for the branch. The sentiment is Crafty Secrets from the "Card Sentiments" set. I also used the SU BG Carte Postale on the purple CS lower right corner. I used the clear emboss to make it pop and then stamped my sentiment on top of that. I had to fill in a little with a .05 black journaler marker. I made this for a friend at work and she loves purple so I tried to use as much purple as I could. She also loved that designer paper and stamp set. So I knew I had to make something for her using all of the things she loves. I just love the vintage stamps. My picture is not clear I took dozens of this journal and was lucky to get a single good one.
