GRANDMA'S GIRL FINISHED

A couple of weeks ago I showed some of the photos of my grandaughter when she was little. I was making an album for her for her 18th. birthday. Well it is now finished and I just need to find a box that fits and mail it off to IL to arrive by Feb. 20th. The cover I made for it came from a class that I am now taking called Remains of The Day by Mary Anne Moss. It is a journal class and this is the pattern for the cover of the journal. Normally your pages would be bound into the cover making a journal but in this case I started with a wire bound journal and filled it first. This cover is just a wrap to keep the book in. Here are a couple more pics of the wrap and the cover. Jenny's favorite color when little was hot pink hence the trimming around the cover.
