I had a BLAST creating this super cute journal following Angie's theme of "Back To School" along with a special hidden bookmark and matching pen for journaling!


For my project this week, I used one of Rachelle Anne Miller's newest stamp available at Kraftin Kimmie's!! this one is called "Dance For Joy" and can be found HERE!! Ohhh, she's sooo cute!!


Some closeup....I tied some cute little butterflies and sparkly crystal beads onto the end of the tassel  made for the bookmark. And continuing with the sparkly...added some Stickles to the flowers!


I tried to capture as many angles as possible to show that it actually is a journal and try to get the bookmark in the shot...LOL. I added some ribbon to the center of the journal, with it hidden away and designed to tie and bind it all together.

I also went to town decorating a plain ole' Bic pen with some seam binding ribbon and more flowers along with a little attachment to keep t all together with the journal!
