Give-Away Winner and Journal

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! It has been lovely here and very enjoyable with our Grandson being around this morning, having some very nice coffee with friends, making a colourful mess and now eventually drawing the winner for my little give-away.
Thank you SOOO much for all the lovely and kind comments, and the winner is: Shelly. Congratulations!

Now this morning I took the plunge and started a journal, thanks for the encouragement from Patty and Debby. I have never done it before and it seemed so scary! But using a little recipe from Dawn I opened the journal and started to make a mess. Dawn's recipe is: take a photograph of a person, stamps (Crafty Individuals, Woodware, Little Claire), DPs (Crate paper, gcd studios), Glossy Accents - oh, and I used lots of gesso and acrylic paint and a little bit of writing ... and I loved it! Petra.
