Embellished Journal Cover

I belong to a group of friends on another blog, which is private by request of a couple of the members.  We make 1 item every 6 weeks for one of the blog members.  last month we were to make a journal cover for our intended.

This is the journal I made for my good friend Dee.  You can go to her blog to see the one she made and sent to the name that was drawn for her.

I used dyed laces from my good friend Nicki's Etsy Shop to make the flower garden on the front.  I had been wanting to try my hand at one of those and I think I passed the test. 

Dee really liked her journal!  We met for lunch one day and I presented it to her along with a jar of my pickle and some laces and embellishments for her next CQ project.

I love sharing with friends!

I really do LOVE my journal. It's just gorgeous. I have it sitting out in the living room so I can look at it!
