Hope and Love Altered Planner

"For a very long time I wanted one of those fancy planners, but they very expensive. So I bought one cheap office planner and decided to upgrade it with some of the swag I got during the Blogger event and some of not expensive products I already had at home. I loved the door concept as the planner to the New Year is like a new door opened to the world. I add this HOPE AND LOVE metal sign as a family name and made it in general vintage colors and design, so it can fit my own style. But if you change the colors, stencil designs and flower style you can make it shabby, modern, classic or whatever style you like."
