21st guest book and journal for my niece

Recently I made two gifts for my niece for her 21st birthday
This one incorporates a 21st birthday card
(the cover of the book)
and the book itself
as the guest book.
This journal to chronicle her 21st year was not meant as it turned out.
I originally bought the black A5 bound book at a cheapie shop and removed the wire binding.
I got a bit carried away with decorating pages
and it all got too big for the little black book's binding to handle
and I was running out of time.
I live in a very small town with not a lot of shops or choice.
I could have had it all bound but a printer
that takes time and I had no time.
So I went to the newsagent
found the above purple floral 2 ring binder.
It would have to do,
I was not really happy with it
it's the best I could come up with.
I had to have it ready for her party
so this is how it had to be.
This brown paper bag has a pull out tab.
The left hand page has a pull out card for journalling.
These groovy rainbow pages have pull out tabs as well.
Yeow baby!!!
Be thankful
Give thanks to the LORD for HE is good...
Psalm 136:1
Pages for doodling.
I included stickers, diecuts etc for
my niece to use in her journal.
Would love to hear your feedback!
Thanks for visiting.
