Mash it up 

Emmy and I decided to scribble down some random lines from our old poems into a notebook (mines the cream colored hers the white), ripped them out and mismatched a poem together. 

She drew some pretty flowers and I outlined them in pen then we clued the papers on 

Turned out pretty beautiful. 

Here’s our outline before the finished product:
