Making time...

I've been squeezing in just a little bit of creating...
an altered thought journal for a sweet friend :)
This is the after:

The before, all spankin' clean and pristine!

A few tiny shoes,
and I'm working the tutorial for them

I forgot to show you these treasures from our Saturday junkin' trip ~
Don't you just love this wonderful little box?!
The old photo is so precious ~
I'll be sure to scan it and share it with you...

The inside was covered with the most "lovely" pepto pink colored paper ~
I had to rip it out and want to cover it with something old.

Plus I won the sweetest giveaway on Sally's blog
Art ~ A Passion to Create!!
A beautiful altered journal she made....

Wonderful antique treasures to create with....

I just love it all!!!!

And nestled inside the stack of antique book pages
was the most precious surprise ~
a single pressed flower stem!!!

Thank you so very much dear Sally,
you're such an angel ~ I love each and every gift!

Sweetness always turns an ordinary day into extraordinary!

Have a great Wednesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Very sweet! Love the box, Dawn! I'm actually working on a box {a hinged lid shoe box} as a keepsake box for my new granddaughter. I need to do something to the inside now and I was stumped for awhile there, but I think I know what I'm doing now. I just need to move on it!

Vee said...

Your friend is going to be so blessed...what a sweet journal. Your own journal from Sally is delightful. I love the brother/sister? sweet.

Monica said...

Just wanted to say hello, Dawn- my apologies for I've been away for so long...
Love the altered journal, definitely my kind of stuff!:)) Such a precious friendship memento to be kept forever!

Theresa said...

Oh what beauty dear Dawn! I just love your beautiful creation and the gift, OMG gorgeous too! Love it when an ordinary day turns glorious! Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

Lisa said...

I love the journal! You did a wonderful job on it! It's a feathered / rabbit, get it? All the shoes look like little elf collars all lined up. You gotta get rid of that friend whose running you crazy making shoes & such. High maintenance. Oh, wait a minute, don't get rid of her. She may have one or two redeeming qualities.
PS Sally sent you a wonderful gift! Love that bird page!

Rose Garden Romantic said...

What a wonderful gift!! And that journal is lovely:)

Sandy said...

I think some lovely thoughts will be captured in that journal, enough to equal the beauty of the cover you created. Always so much prettiness here, thanks for sharing.

Oh, Dawn, girl. You're always making the most gorgeous stuff!



Dawn, your journal is beautiful! And those shoes just waiting for soles...too precious! Love your gifted treasures too. ~ Angela

Sally L. Smith said...

I think I recognize that buckle and lace. You've done another wonder on a plain book. Love how you put buttons on the existing stretch strap--good idea. I wanted to send things you wouldn't have to grunge up. Enjoy!--Sally

Barbara Jean said...
