Mini Journal

Hello!  I made a mini journal for my husband's god daughter, Isabella for Easter.  I just realized I forgot to blog about it.  There are quite a few pictures with this one :-)  I used a great new paper stack by The Paper Studio called Ooh-La-La!  Love it!  Hope you enjoy!
                                                                      Front cover.

Inside cover.  I created a pocket and then a chipboard double-heart, covered with paper, and attached with a ribbon that she can tuck in the pocket or use as a bookmark.
I used a stamp to add some fun to the back of the first page.
I added a pocket/envelope before the back cover.  I stamped 'Dream' in white ink.
Back of the pocket/envelope.  Inside back cover.
Back cover :-)
