journal and a thank you

Morning guys,firstly I want to thank my dear friend Dawn, crafty dawn,who started me with my journal,bless her.  She sent me this gorgeous tag,and book just to say thank you for always comenting on her work,bless her heart how kind is that.
Must say this tag and book the picture does not do it justice,as the colors are fantastic,so here it is,
so bless your heart for these hun just loved them.
Now as you know my book I have been doing I decided to alter things a wee bit just wanted more on the cover and was not happy with some of the pages,I bought some croco paint,from the CRAFT DEN.
Must really stress the service from the Craft Den is amazing I ordered my things on the Thurdsday and they were here Friday HOW Brilliant is that,great service. I am still waiting for stuff I ordered on create and craft I ordered on the,6th May rrrrrrrrrr.  Love what they do on there and love watching all the shows but oh wish they would improve with there posting.
So if you want to take a look at the Craft DEN then go here,you will not be disapointed with the service.
so here is what i have done with my book,

Back cover with the croco,crackle paint,the cross I found at a car boot sale,

Inside back page

This is the page I altered again as was not happy with it, before so I   used gold viva,paint and stamped around the page.

Spine of book which you can just about see the crackle.

This is the cover which I have added some more,things to it. Think it looks better.
Before i go also want to thank,Zoe,for her help too bless her just asking for here help too with how to use different mediums,so thank you hun.
