This is my first craftster challenge. I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first, however I was inspired at the last minute when I hit the book aisle. Enjoy!



The supplies I used.  Colored construction paper, graphing paper, and a book. It came out to about $5.



I gutted the $3 book and used some of the pages for the decor.



The decorating process.




Voila! A journal! After all the binding and other tedious work it turned out great.

Thanks! It wasn't difficult to bind it's just tedious work. I could make one for you. You could even name the price.
