New Butterfly

I have to admit this is the worst start to a new year that I have ever had.  Everything seems to be going wrong.  Anyway, I have decided to change my attitude about everything.  Just the the Serenity Prayer, I am the only thing I can change.  Today I decorated a new journal. New attitude for a new journal.   Sounds good huh??  I used a digital set from Clear Dollar Stamps and it is called New Butterfly.  Perfect name to go with the new attitude.  The flower also comes with the set.  The butterfly also comes closed up separately also landing on the flower.  The set also come with four sentiments.
Below is a picture of the journal before I decorated it.  I purchased it last year after Christmas and it has been sitting around on a shelf in my craft room.  I think I paid 25cents for it.  Gotta love that! =)
I would like to submit this project into these challenges:
