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.
