Life is a journey

Hello everyone,
I visited the Lili of the Valley shop this morning so I've had a lovely afternoon of stamping with my new stash! I hope you've all had a good day too. I have a journal to share with you today which I made a few weeks ago but keep forgetting to post! The papers and postcard are from the Correspondence collection by Craftwork Cards, and the butterflies (with added diamond dust), tags and stamp were all elements that I cut out of some of the papers. I made the little envelope using a Woodware punch and the letters are from a Pion Design sheet. I've embellished with:
Hessian, lace, key charm (with added paint), twine - Ribbon Girl
Ribbon - Craftwork Cards
Pearls - Samuel Taylors

Thank you so much for looking and for all of your lovely comments! I'll be round to visit you all soon.
