Altered Journal

First, some news - JLJ Designs is sponsoring the challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week. The prize is a $10 gift certificate to my store. The challenge this week is buttons.

I had hoped to post this earlier this week, but blogger conspired against me : ) I've altered a simple journal that I got from my sister. I added Magnolia images to the front and back.

On the front side I used, Tilda with her kitten. I made a little swing for her using a die cut, some fancy fiber and sparkly buttons. I colored her with Copics.

For the back side, I stamped a dancing Tilda on Kraft and colored her hair. I paper pieced her dress and shoes using the same paper I used for the background.

I'd like to enter this journal in the following challenge:
Totally Tilda #22 - Tilda with her cat or dog

Happy Crafting!
