small project and news to share

This journal was very quick to create. I bought it with the pages already bound and everything. I did take apart the spine so I could replace the flimsy cover with some corrugated cardboard. I used my new TH die cut to cut the hinges from grungboard and embossed them with gold ep. I used super glue to adhere them to the cover. I created the splats by taking the lid off my glimmer mist and using the spray top to drip tattered leather GM from the straw. What will I be using this journal for? To plan my new bedroom! This brings me to my first news: we are moving! I have lived in the same house all my life and it will be very odd to be somewhere new. Although I will only be in the new house for a few years max before I move out I still get to design my new room. I will also be getting my very own craft room which I am super excited about! We are going to be moving starting mid June and will be settling in for most of the summer. I will try to keep my crafting to a max and update the blog as often as possible but it will be busy.
I do have more news! This month I will be participating in my very first swap! I was lucky enough to get signed up in time for Arlene's June Tag Swap! I am soooo super excited! The theme is "postcard from paris" with an optional challenge of vintage/collage. This is totally up my alley and I have already designed my tag and started on the mass production. I cant wait to share more!
