New Journal entries

Here are three new journal entries I've done over the last couple of days.

This is just done with things I've had in my miscellanious folder. The Mary Jane wrapper is from my swap with Mel.

Remember the old days!

Take a holiday at the shore. I've never been to the ocean. I guess I should go someday. This does look relaxing. The page is an ad from a magazine with my own words added.

I bought all this for 25 cents

Paul and I took a drive a couple of Saturdays ago and we stopped at a library in a small town near so Paul could do some research. At the library they of course had some books for sale and several other items. I bought the bag below for 25 cents. It had lots of great Ephemera in it for using in my collages. And at 25 cents what a great buy! You can see the pictures from our drive here.

Some neat things I've received in the mail!

Tracy at Seaside Enchantment had a contest several months ago and I won! I wanted to post the prize I received and thank her for it again! Thanks Tracy.

Tracy knows I love paper crafts and scrapbooking and the prize she picked for me was just right. I've been using the the paper and other items in my ATC and scrapbook pages. Here are three ATC I made using the paper from the packet as the background.

I did a swap of ephemera with Mel a friend from Flickr. She does great ATC. She commented on my 40's style ATC and I sent her some of the magazines where I get my images and she sent me all of this:

Among the things she sent were two booklets. One was a vacation book from 1941. I told her I loved 40's vintage items and I would include it with my collection. Here it is on the shelf in my kitchen. . I like to put up different displays through out the year. This summer I had my collection of vintage items on display. Now it's time for a fall display.

The other booklet was about cheese. I thought it went nicely with this little dairy box.

Thanks to you both! Now to get around to some more ATC using these neat things!
