These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

The theme this week at This Thurday is to make something you love, more or less an open theme. So I've altered this journal using these things I love:
1. This $1 journal from Michael's which came in these amazing colors, just wanting to be altered.
2. The brown background die cut which I got from StampinUp. It's called Top Notes and it is one of my very favorite new things. I've been using it on everything.
3. Images from Crafty Individuals. I just love 'em!
4. This sheet of old German text which someone sent me as an RAK.
5 The word "serendipity." This is the inside page. More things I love:
1. These coupons by Tim Holtz
2. This perfectly appropriate quote (stamp by Inkadinkado).
3. The $1 stamp with the bird flourish.
4. Matching magnetic bookmark.
