Kinda a Monday Metamorphis - for Karen

I have been so excited to show this post, but I had to wait until the gift arrived to the giftee.

And I know, I am probably stretching the rules for Metamorphis Monday at Susan's....but, can a Metamorphis being changing nothing to something? I am going with YES!

You all remember that Karen from Some Days are Diamonds, hosted a Ceekay giveaway. Well, I wanted to do a little something for Karen as a thank you. One of my chemo sleep deprived nights, I came up with this idea. You see, Karen loves to make Altered Journals. She even sent me the most beautiful items for me to make myself one. So I thought of making her this mini 4 inch book....of things needed to make an Altered Journal.

It turned out soooooo cute! And Karen wrote me and she really loved it...so it was even more special then.
























Seriously, this was so fun to make and I love that my pictures turned out good too.

Hope you enjoy!
