I love goldfishes. They are round and cute and always happy to see you. I started rearing tropical fishes a couple of years ago and was obsessed with fishes for a while...I read every book they had in the library and interestingly, overcame my squeamishness about touching slimy live creatures. I remember feeling frightened as a child walking past a tropical fish store because of all the live insects and worms...I am glad now that I can feed my fish dried food....I'm not such a fan of watching one fish preying on another live creature....Anyway, this is my layout for this week's challenge at Scrapping Out Loud...which is to include some hidden journaling on your layout. Mine is a little envelope which I stitched directly on the layout ( a note to myself)..

A lot of handstiching on a mix of Sassafras and Scenic Route papers... some masking with paint and more stitching... Large chipboard by Fancy Pants, letter chipboard by Lil' Davis and letter stickers by Adorn It.
