Love beyond words.

Been using up scraps of paper in my journal over the past couple of days. Like a lot of folk I even keep the smallest pieces that I tore off when using a larger piece for a project. The page is bodged together with book print, tissue strips, home made patterned backgrounds. The words should have been together from one stamped image, but somehow these look better separated for this page. The main image is from a print out sheet and has lain around in the bits box for ages, I even topped this with a scrap from a die cut frame.
So lots of paper scraps used,  the box is still jammed full, when will I ever learn to throw bits away.
 I did over stamp a few places so it joined things together. Shading was Vintage Photo distress ink.
I would like to join these challenges-
Artful Times - Challenge 50 --Anything Goes
Country View Challenges --Paper Chase..

Thank you for calling in to see me, I always appreciate your comments.
