A Beautiful Life

I'm working on the most beautiful project this week.
Heather at Pretty Petals is doing a gorgeous journal
in an online class. And the pretty images
she's got for us are making me *swoon*.

I decided to use this wonderful vintage ledger
that I found awhile back. It's been sitting
there waiting for me to find just the right
project for it. And this one is perfect!

This is my finished cover. The book is 7 x 12
which is such a fun size to work with.

Heather put out the first two pages
during the night, and I couldn't wait
to get started! So, of course, I stayed up
and played with it until I finished.

If you're not taking this class, you're really missing
something fun and beautiful. It's not too late
to sign up though. Heather has done a great job
with step by step instructions and pictures, making
it easy for anyone to make this beautiful journal.

Have a beautiful day!

Debi!! Your journal is SO amazing!!!! First of all, I love the cover and that you used your ledger books! I know that is hard to do. Secondly, I love how you took it and added those pretty wallpaper roses. Is that glitter on there? looks SOOO petty. So exciting to see your book coming together! Thanks for joining and it is so fun to see that you are excited about making your journal!
