Snow Days Blog Hop Day 2

Hello and Welcome back!!!  I hope you all hopped along with us yesterday, if not you can just go through both days now and check out all the wonderful creations.

I live in Michigan and we usually have had a couple of snow days by now for the kids at school.  This year it is strange because we are only hitting the 40s to late 30s when it comes to temps lately....not normal for MI.  But as they say, if you don't like the weather here wait 5 min and it will prob change :)

So my project for today is a journal I made for a swap.  I loved that my partner wanted red, black, and white.  I have never done those before so I thought it would be fun.  I don't want to give to much of it away because I still want her to be surprised but these journals are quite fun and easy to make!!!
I love a project that no matter what you do you cant go wrong :)  So enough babbling here it is:
So I had a flower in the middle there but it fell off so I am rethinking what should go there, any suggestions?   I am thinking feathers, I have been on a feather kick for quite some time now hehehe
 Here is the inside cover, I used a page cover for a smaller album so she could have a pocket in the front.  I have a few of them in there.
 Just some decorative pages, these hold tags she can write on.
And here is just some little embellishments I added along the way, I also stamped some sentiments because she wants to use it mostly for journaling and not so much pics.  I hope you like my project. 
Now hop on over to Beckie
Here's a list of the entire hop, in case you get lost along the way or want to revisit anyone, I know its long but SOOOO worth it!
