6 Months In The Making...

Warning!!!
Lots of pictures with this one!

This pink fabric and lace journal
was a project I began last summer.

As often happens,
it was set aside.

I stumbled across the unfinished journal just last month.

It was in a bin of pink bits,
which I was sorting for the kits I have been working on.

After some embellishing,
it was finally finished.

Although,
is a project like this ever really complete?

Every page is perfectly pink.

The images have all been printed on fabric.

The materials are a mix of vintage and new.

Together with the color pink,
the heart/love quotes are the common thread throughout.

As are the sweet little girl photos.

I love these embroidered flowers that I used as photo corners.

There are even a few cards of additional lace and trims.

A vintage metal frame hangs on one page.

There is very little machine sewing,
as I did mostly hand stitching.

The tiny locket on this page
has been left empty.
Perhaps waiting for a special photo or
even a secret message to be hidden away inside.

This adorable kitten and a vintage quilt block fill the last page.

The back cover has been left unembellished.

If you have stuck it out this far,
I thank you very much.

I will be making this available for purchase very soon.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
hugs,
Kim

Such a lovely book! It's a lucky soul who will have this to treasure.
I've made two pink fabric journals for friends, and have the makings in a bin for one for myself but have yet to start it. You've given me new inspiration!
