Tall Patriotic Journal

Hello and Happy 4th of July!!  I've made a Vintage, Tall Patriotic Journal.  I've used lots of Tim Holtz goodies on this.  It was so much fun to put together!
Front cover.

First 2 pages.

Next 2 pages.

Journal open all the way.  

Back of the pages.  The pages are made out of manilla file folders.  I stenciled on the back sides.  You can still add some journaling.  For the binding I used some cream color fabric and my Singer sewing machine.  I was doing Zig zag stitch and then on the last panel (far right) I got a surprise.  My daughter changed the stitch on the machine and I didn't notice it until it was too late.  I just ran with it.  It ended up on the front of the book and I really liked it...LOL!
