A pocket

This is the theme for week 31 of The documented life project. I did some junk journaling working on recycled cardboard page and then used a flattened toilet roll to make my pocket. I covered everything is papers, added a few pretty embellishments and started to add pretty things to my pocket. I bought I lovely red flowery dress on the weekend and I liked the tag on it almost as much as the dress!
