Journaling for the artistically challenged

I have had a great morning, apart from wondering about the safety of my son who has gone camping with some mates I have been sewing. Some month ago I watched a DVD by Leanne of Leanne's House about journaling. I really liked the idea and thought I would have a go. Sadly my writing is something from junior primary and to put it straight I'm not that artistic. So I decided to make a journal that I could use with the help of the computer. I bought a 4 ring folder and came up with a design for the back, front etc. I used a pattern for the stitchery from Leanne as I have the pattern for her "Journey of a Quilter" quilt. The text I used the computer and the back came from me. Here it is, it turned out really well to my surprise I can now print the pages on the computer. But that will be my next post.
