Love is in the air!!

Happy Monday and welcome to the 5th challenge at The Kraft Journal!! The theme for this week is "LOVE".  I hope you will join in on the fun, be sure to visit The Kraft Journal for all of the challenge details!

I found a tutorial on YouTube on how to make this journal. It's super easy to make and I had a lot of fun decorating it. Let's take a look and then I'll give you some details.

With Rick working nights right now it seems like we don't see each other that much. I thought it would be a great idea to make a journal to leave him Love Notes in that he could read when he got home. I wanted it to be a little rustic and not too frilly but when it comes to LOVE there has to be a little frilly involved...right? I made this flower out of mini cupcake liners and I just adore it!! Lot's of embossing created the background, cute beads created the title and baker's twine was used for the binding and bows.

I hope that you enjoy this project and are inspired to make your own "LOVE" creation. Head on over to The Kraft Journal and see what our other amazing designers did with this challenge.

Have a fabulous day!!
