Altered Journals

These mini journals came from Michael's (I think they were marked down to 50 cents each) right before Christmas.  The dress form was made using the French Manor cartridge with my Cricut machine and I made the flower yo-yo.  The bling flourish and bling across the dress form are from Michael's.  The jeweled pearl on the closure is "Say it with Pearls" from Prima.

The second journal:  black and gold scalloped circles were made with Spellbinders dies and my Cuttlebug.  The gold embossing was done with a Spellbinders Mbossibilities folder.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.  Pearls on the butterfly and the rhinestone flourish are from Mike's and the jeweled pearl on the closure is from Prima.

Thanks for looking!!
