Journal for a friend

One of my friends is wanting to move to Australia so i made her a journal to record her year of getting there.It started as two 10x8 canvas boards as i wanted a bigger journal than the art parts i used previously for journals.These were decorated using Dylusions ink sprays and Sheryl likes green and orange( a challenge in itself i can tell you) I got some basswood and cut it to the right length. Using sticky backed canvas already inked up and  using Tim Holtz ring binder  you have a canvas journal.
So inside i used mostly Tim Holtz papers, Dylusions stamps and bits i had that were appropriate.
I made pockets for photos, tickets,bits and bobs, plans etc.I even made a bag for it which was an achievement as i am no sewer but i enjoyed it.
Then to finish it the embellishments as she is a hairdresser she got scissors, angel wing, key, her initial and the year it was made for 2012.
Thankq for looking
