My Merry Christmas Mini

Last November I purchased
this journal kit from Tim Holtz Etsy shop...

 and it has had a home on a shelf in my craft room ever since. This Christmas season I promised myself I would put this thing together and actually fill in the pages. 
Hey, hey... I've started...

The kit, of course, didn't come
with any of the inks, so I got to chose whatever colors I wanted from my stash... which is quite extensive (I LOVE Ranger inks!!!)

Some of the handware
that came with the kit had the bronze finish, so I carried that color on to the knob and alphas using Rub 'n Buff.

I also put on a bronze
corner piece from my stash to make mine more of an original.

Now to decorate the 
pages and then actually do some journaling. Yikes... that's the hard part!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

WOW.. I am always so inspired when I pop in here. Your journal cover looks amazing. Can't wait to see what you do with the pages inside.
