Delightful Digi's - Thistle Journal Cover Design

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you have had a good week and have something nice planned for the weekend. I am off to Ally Pally on Saturday we are hoping to get there early as there are so many people that I want to meet up with and of course I have a shopping list. I hope to get lots of photos if they come out I will post some here.

This is something of a sad post as this will be my last post as part of the Delightful Digi's Design Team. I have taken the hard decision to step down from this team as I am finding that I don't have enough time to make the most of the delightful images. I do wish Emma and all the rest of the team all the best for the future they are a very talented bunch.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while will know that I keep a journal that I write in everyday so really it is a diary. I realised recently that it is much cheaper to buy plain journals and have the fun of decorating them myself. As soon as I saw this Thistle design, that is part of the new designs collection at Delightful Digi's, I wanted to put it on one of my journals. 

This design is Thistle round I coloured  it with my Promarkers. The backing paper is from Delightful Digi's as well I inked it with a mauve Distress ink to add colour to the design. In the corners I added some corner die cuts from a Tonic set that I have. 


There it is my last blog post for Delightful Digi's. I will have the journal for a long time as a beautiful reminder of my time with the team. 

Have a great weekend.

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
