M5D Spring Chickadee Altered Easter Journal and some new M5D digis

Good evening, and Happy weekend friends~
If you have not been over to the McMahon Five Design's store lately, now is a great time to drop by for a visit.  Sue has been so busy stocking her store full of gorgeous Easter, Spring and just plain beautiful digis to create with, and while you are there, check out some of her newly stocked primas and embellies.  You can create some of the most incredible cards with her supplies.  Don't forget that M5D is the home of the wood paper that always gives that unique and natural, breathtaking beauty to our creations.

I decided to try out an altered journal this time.  I still am a work in progress with some of these altered items.  I am still new to this sort of thing.  It really is fun to do though, and I imagine that you can alter pretty much anything to your liking.  Look how cute these little chickie digis are.  I created a wood paper fence with the M5D wood with flower soft lining through the fence planks.  Gives off a nice, Happy spring and Easter feeling. 



Lots of ribbon along the binding for a fun and colorful touch.



I hope you enjoy, and I appreciate your comments and your visit.  Have a great weekend!!

Hugs and Blessings to you!
