Back to School blog hop day 2

welcome to the 2nd day of our 

make a gif

{back to school blog hop}

{i'm just going to apologize  ~ in advance for the terrible pictures but with the hurricane like storms we've been having in Florida USA lately the natural lighting is nonexistent!} 

because i'm planning to take a couple college classes this fall i thought a journal would be perfect to keep all my notes, schedule, memories and so on in the same place!

so this is my back to college journal 

all the gorgeous papers/pages from the opening side

inside front cover

lots of little details and stitching make this a loaded full of thoughtful texture kind of book

did tons of sewing

and i love this ledger paper from basic grey!

all the ledger tabs are ready for a class name or notes

this is one of my favorite trimmings! loooove it!

paper flower diecut with a brad - just for fun

need some class photos here with a couple notes around don't you think!?

tons of journaling space here!

if you look closely you can tell the edges of the pages are sewn - the truth is i didn't use any glue - all 100% of these pages are held together with sewing
this was a super-fun book to create and can't wait to fill it with tons of momentous! 

what do you think? could you use a college journal?
