shabby journal

i've been working on a shabby journal.   mary ann moss offers a great class on making these.  this is a photo of my front cover.  the cloth tape measure was a great find in my mother in law's sewing goodies when we were cleaning out her house.  the heart is from an old quit i had cut up and there is hand tatted lace from my mom's collection that i used on top of the heart as well.  i have a few pieces of material on there from my friend, susie, who lives in england, and i used pieces of my old blue jeans, too.  i am working on the inside signatures but with all the sewing it is taking long to complete.   i love the whole concept of this journal as it encourages me to use up my scraps.
