I made this journal for the aussie just one thing swap for my partner

you can see more photos on the aussie just one thing swap gallery

every page had places for journalling photos hidden pockets and suprises.
i used paperbags for the basic journal covered with felt i had freehand machine sewed and appliqued leaves. I made the flowers by hand. I die cut shapes, frames, birds from fabric inside. Added lace, ribbon, string,buttons... The pages and tags are all inked and decorated ina variety of ways. i included an embossed handmade notebook, chocolate of course and a pendant with a tree as a suprise (thanks spectrumsparkie who sent me 2 in a swap so i shared one its so gorgeous)
you can see a video on more detail of the journal if you click on my youtube link in my signature if you are interested.
thanks for looking the journal took about 12 - 14  hour to make but i enjoyed it and loved how it finished up
