Journal Swap

Recently, I participated in my first journal swap.  I've never altered a journal before and I was willing to try.  After I saw some of the ones that other people did, I was overwhelmed with how beautiful their work was.  I feel like mine didn't measure up, but it was my first time and now I will have more knowledge on how to do one.  I just love learning to do new things.  Here is a picture of the one I did and I will put of pictures of the one I get when I receive it. 

 
She wanted to use her journal to record birthdays.  Thus the calendars on the front from young to old.  I included the months inside and pockets to put other notes.

And because my partner was an Army Wife, I made a second one for her to use in her purse or her car, it was much smaller and included a pen.  I got this stamp from 2 red bananas and the sentiment is "I Salute You."  I also had some "Army" silver tags and used them on the elastic closure.
