Take Time to Follow Your Dreams... my 7x5 sketch journal

I've had a couple of CTMH journals laying around for far too long.  So it was time to decorate one up for myself.  I'm going to use it for my sketches, since I'm not much of a journaler.  :)

I decided to leave the coils alone and not tie any ribbons around them or anything.  That way, when I want to re-do my cover, I can very easily and not have to worry about the ribbons matching the new insert page.  The journal's cover has a protector on it so you can just slide the 7x5 piece into it.  Love that.  It's not permanent.  Cool.

So this is a project using scraps from the You & Me kit.  In case you're wondering how I have so many scraps, it's because I cut parts out the base pages that would be covered by photos and B&Ts, then just glued them onto some cardstock.  I also measured out the patterened B&Ts and cut them down to fit, as well.  Gave me lots of extras to play around with.  ;)

Funny thing is I still have to do the layouts from the kit.  lol

Happy creating!  :)
