Thrifty Thursdays - Altered Journal

Happy Thrifty Thursday!  If you follow me on facebook you know that a couple of days ago I made a trip to Michaels and found the most fantastic Vintage Circus items in the their dollar bins.  For this week's project I bought one of the journals and a pack of cards/envelopes.   I started by pulling out some of the paper throughout the book in sections.  I then adhered envelopes and photo mats (made out of a paper bag). I embellished the front with the image from one of the cards matted on crumpled brown paper bag, added eyelets and ribbon and done!  A easy way to turn a dollar bin journal into a fun altered journal that you can add photos and other fun bits from your life!
