Altered Journal

Hi there and happy Thursday to you all!  I hope you are surviving the week ok.  Today I'm sharing a journal with you.  I picked up a few of these a while back for 2/$1.00 at my LCS.  I liked the size of them and thought they would make some great little gifts.  So here is a before pic.

That's cute enough, but I wanted to put together a quick gift for a teacher so here is what I did.

Cute, huh?  I started off with some school themed digital papers from Digital Delights.  Both of my decorative papers are from this set.  I also used the Best Teacher sentiment digi.  I colored the image up real quick with my Copics, then I added some ribbon and a button, twine, and rhinestones from my stash.  So quick and simple and a great gift to give to your favorite teacher.

Be sure to head over to the Digital Delights blog to see what my fellow DT members created.  Also, don't forget to visit Delightful Challenges to see what they have to share as well.
