Journal love

Hi everyone,

Yes,I have finally given in and been bitten by the journaling bug.....don't know what took me so long :)

I have been seeing so many lovely creations in blogland that I thought well why not. So,at the moment I am creating my own one,bought one that's got prepared backgrounds and prompts and have a gorgeous handmade one on order with some mixed pages ready to alter.

If you have any advice,tips,please feel free to leave a comment....types of paper used,best pens etc.

Isn't my new Stampotique stamp gorgeous? Love him,yes he's ugly but ugly is the new cute,right :)

The book I bought (see above)is wonderful for newbies. Wanted to show you inside but I need another pair of hands to keep it open to photograph the pages! It's gorgeous and well worth a look,got this from Amazon for under a tenner so great value.

Hope you like my new forage into journaling
