A friend and I are reading a wonderful book together which challenges us to count each gift from God. You can read more about it on the author's blog http://onethousandgifts.com/ and we wanted to make journals to record our "gifts." I started with a journal from M's $1 bin. I used modge podge to adhere the music sheet to the cover. I used a sanding block to curve around the round corners and sponged with Soft Suede and Creamy Caramel. I stamped the Medallion in Baja Breeze and the bird in Onyx. I added some large spatter and small spatter in Suede and Espresso and sponged the edges of the vellum quotes after tearing. I added the vellum flourish stickers (wish I'd put them more on the sides...my daughter said one looks like a mustache!) and added the polka dot tape to the edge and spine. Final touch was the binder clip with ribbon tie.
