One More Halloween Journal

Hello everyone and welcome!  Can you stand just one more Halloween journal?
Remember those cute little journals I made from notebooks I found at Target for a dime?  If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.  Anyway, shortly after sending them home with the kids, Emma's journal sort of had a "mishap".  Thinking it may have had a bit of sibling rivalry involved...hmmm...if you know what I mean!  So, I got a phone call from Miss Emma, and yes there were tears...asking me to please make her another journal.  And....could this journal maybe have a witch on it?.....and could that witch maybe be on a broom?  So...what's a Nonna to do?  Back upstairs to my corner to make yet another Halloween journal.  Special order, no less.....

Emma's new, improved, custom journal....

*I used the witch from Happy Hauntings cut at 5.25 inches.
*I placed her on a moon that I cut out and inked up with black ink then covered with lots and lots of course glitter from Martha Stewart.
*I blinged up her hat with black glitter and her dress with a few orange gems.
*Letters for Emma's name are from Kate's ABCs cut at 1.5 inches, inked up and glittered.

I'll be seeing Emma after school today and I hope this journal lives up to the one she has created in her head!  I also hope this one survives more than one or two days!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!
Until next time,
