Have received my gorgeous Flower Fairy journal and posted details & photos to the Gallery. It's truly AWESOME!!!  I love it.

I received my journal from LisaT today: a beautiful Flower Fairy journal, together with its own guardian, this very delicate flower fairy with enormous blooms for a skirt.



The colour scheme is a gorgeous combination of pinks, browns & cream with a little gold thrown in!  And the journal is bound with a coptic stitch (a much neater version than my own I must confess!) enabling the journal to open flat!



I love the brown velvet ribbon tied around the journal!



The pink tile on the bottom front is pink pearlescent card, the same card used in all the signatures.  This will be a journal I can dance on and it will still stand the test of time! (not that I would dance on it of course!!)  Wink



Each signature has its own pocket decorated with a flower fairy picture. 



The inside front & back covers are lined with a piece of brown & gold mottled card.  The deckled edge is a lovely feature, and is used throughout the journal.



A close up of the cover with it's beautiful script.  So romantic!



I've loved this swap and I am so pleased I took part.  I learned so many new techniques which is wonderful.  And I had a wonderful swap pal in LisaT!  Thank you for this special journal.  I'll treasure it!  xx Bernie xx

PS - I'm not sure if this will work, but here's a link to
My Photobucket album with all the photos I took of the journal I sent to LisaT and the journal she kindly made me.  Enjoy! x

I'm so glad you like it LisaT! 

It was a labour of love and I am delighted you're so happy with the overall look. 

The 'journal' / 'journey' theme was my starting point, together with the purple and green colour scheme.  I just ran with it. 

Hopefully you'll capture some lovely thoughts and memories.  Enjoy each page! 

xx Bernie xx

I'm done.  It will be in the post on Monday!  The coptic stitch binding is not 100% perfect but overall I think it looks pretty neat!  It is going to be hard to part with though....

Will pm as soon as it's posted.  TTFN
