Altered Composition Book Blog Hop





Good Morning!!  So happy you could join us for this Amazing Talent filled Blog Hop.  First off, i would like to thank Joy, from Joyslife.com for inviting me to be  a part of this Great Group!  I was so honored she even thought of me.  I was even more excited when I found out what the hop was all about!!  I had been wanting to create a journal book just about me.  I wanted to document everything that has been going on this last year, since I challenged myself to lose weight and transform myself.  So this was perfect.

Now if you arrived here from  Margie's blog - http://bellabugcreations.blogspot.com/ , then you are in the right place.  If not you will want to start at  Joy's blog - http://www.joyslife.com/ .  that way you don't miss a thing.  Now onto my project.  Like I said I wanted to create something where I could write down my thoughts, my struggles and achievements during this journey I have embarked on.  So this is what I created.  I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.  Had way too much fun making this, so I forgot to note what exactly I used.  But I can tell you there are a lot of Tim Holtz, and Prima flowers.








The back of my book is just covered with the same pattern paper I used on the front.  Well there you have it.  I hope you enjoyed it.  I will be giving away some Tim Holtz goodies to one luck commenter.  So leave me your thoughts and a way for me to contact you.  I will pick a winner on August 24th.  Now onto your next stop which is 
Melissa -http://melissa-moecreations.blogspot.com/ .  I have included the complete lineup in case you should get lost. 

Thank you so much for joining us and I hope you have enjoyed yourself.  Take care and have a Great weekend!!
