I loved making this. I use a lot of pretty notebooks and journals in day to day life, often paying a fortune for the pleasure, so buying a relatively cheap notebook and decorating it myself was a real treat. I will definitely do this again for other journals.
I used two of my background papers from week one, red and yellow gingham fabric, some scrap book paper I received free with a craft magazine last year, two clip art flower images, a picture of me with my first baby (30+ years later, Aoife adores one of the newer models of the same doll), a few buttons, some inspiring words, inks, paints, oil pastels, and embroidery floss. Stamps by Penny Black and My Sentiments Exactly.
