Penny For Your Thoughts...

Have you ever heard the term "Penny for your thoughts"?  
When I received the Penny Emporium Collection Pack from Bo Bunny, I knew it would be just perfect for the special gift I had planned for a dear friend.  Using a plain wooden journal I had purchased from the dollar bin at my local store, I set out to create a unique journal unlike anything available in a store. A place where she could write down her thoughts, hopes and dreams...
I covered the front and back of the journal with the patterned paper, and embellished it using brads, chipboard and die cuts from the collection.
The inside pages were decorated with images from the Noteworthy packet, and the alpha stickers from the collection!  I highlighted the pages with Evergreen Bough Distress Ink.

The Penny Emporium paper collection has everything you will need to create a journal of your own.  Give it a try!                             

Happy Creating!
