Green "Life is Beautiful" Journal

I've been making a few journals lately, this one perfect for Di's challenge at Pixie's Snippets Playground with lots of patterned paper snippets on the cover (if you can see the camoflaged leaf die-cuts against the green floral paper), paper and cardstock snippets inside and a lovely lace snippet on the journal spine.  The leaves dies are from my favourite die set at the moment - Botanical Builder from Stampin' Up (probably because it's my newest : )

Patterned paper covering A5 envelope then folded in half, makes a softish cover. Some die cut leaves in bottom right corner glued on then all mod podged to seal it. Twine flower glued on with Glossy Accents.

4 x 6 1/2"
1 signature
32 pages (16 pages folded in half and sewn together along the centre fold line)
64 pages front and back

Journal with tags and mini notebooks to go back into tuckspots and pockets.
