Flower Journal

Snappppp, I have had a stressful couple of days (blame iTunes and rude people, separate incidents) and I'm feeling a little on edge. Darn anxiety... I'm over it, but I still feel physically sick. I hate how when something annoying or stressful happens, the feeling sticks with you. Anyhoo, I want to show you this notebook I made as a thank you gift for a good, kind girl. The quote says, "Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony you carry in your heart concerning things divine." --Gordon B Hinckley. Good advice. I think I need to heed that today...Think positive!
I used recycled kraft cardstock on the inside pages, so they're sturdy enough to use this as an album, not just a journal. Yeah, options. And I glued in assorted ribbons to serve as dividers, and I just like the way they look sticking out like that :) To keep the ribbons from shredding, I just coated the ends in a little clear nail polish.
"Flower" from FETC Clip Art
The flower has little diamond glaze dots on it to add a little fun texture and a little dimension.

So, have a fantastic day, everyone! I am going to try to do that, too... I'm going to Zumba tonight and I'll probably eat some ice cream. No, Bobby ate the last of it... Make that cheez-its and Cadbury Mini-Eggs.

It's lovely, Kira! I really like the way you added the ribbons as little dividers on the pages. Very cute.

Hope your weekend only gets better from here!
