I started by creating the cover.  This is my handy click it tool for punching
wholes and it works really well.  So I used the back cover of a sketch pad cut it
in half then punched my holes.

Then cut all my pages and punched those by measuring them with the
cover wholes and put in my rings.

Inside pages.

Then comes the fun part, decorating the cover.
I used a alphabet scrapbook page for this journal.

Then used card stock paper for inside of cover to clean up raw edges.

Used one of my new Magnolia stamps and got this image.
Pulled out my color pencils and colored the image.

For each color I use a light and dark color in the same color family the lighter
color for coloring and the darker for shading.

You can see the coloring better here.

Add a little theme saying.

And here it is finished and ready for my first entry.
