Altered journals

I needed to make something for a swap that was Thanksgiving or Christmas themed. I had such a hard time finding something. I looked at all the stuff i had to alter and decided on these. I really like how they came out. The leaf stamps are OLD Close to My Heart Stamps. They are actually wood stamps. The colors are autumn terrecotta and Pansy Purple. The saying is an irish blessing. I thought that was appropriate for Thanksgiving. Hope the 2 ladies like these!!
