Going Places, A New Journal

There is so much blooming here at Greenbow. It has been a fun spring so far. I have been so busy in the garden I haven't been able to post but I have tried to keep up with everyone else's posts.  I feel like the garden is prepared to meet summer.
It is just in time because I am soon going to go on a little vacation. You know what that means for me. I had to have a new journal to keep my trip in.
This journal has several details that please me. The crocheted piece on the front was sent to me by a dear friend. I just love it and I wanted to use in this way. I thought it quite appropriate becasue the trip I am going on is a garden tour. These little crocheted flowers and butterfly fit the theme of the trip. I couldn't stop myself. I had to add a little bling to it. I added some beads 
On the tie that closes the journal I also added beads. Beads make me happy. 
The nuts and bolts of the inside is good. I have some 140# Arches WC paper as well as some writing paper. I thought the brown writing paper good as it symbolizes soil to me. 
I made little pockets to store receipts, pamphlets and other items, from the left over end papers.
This stripe was the back end paper.
I hope you have some fun summer vacation to look forward to too.

Darn new blogger settings are driving me crazy. Sorry about the double post. I even lost some of the original posting. CRAZY.
