A sketch challenge journal

Hi everyone.

Today I have a little 6x6 journal that I decorated for this week's challenge over at the Just Add Ink blog. I really like the sketch that Danielle and Amanda put together for this challenge. Straight away I thought of the die cut blooms from SU that I have had in my stash for a while, waiting to be put to use. Here is the JAI sketch for this week:

And here is my journal:

I am quite happy with the way it turned out. I love these colours together and I think this will be the perfect place to record all the funny things my daughter does. One thing I should have done was to trim the dies to sit against the edge of the ribbon, rather than place the ribbon on top as they can be seen through the ribbon. This is not so obvious in real life, but in the photo you can see the ridges clearly. I didn't want to pull it all apart as it probably would have ruined the DSP background. Oh well, I'll know for next time!! Would love to know what you think and see any journals you've done. By the way, does anyone seal their journals with mod podge or anything similar? Mine always seem to get a but tatty around the edges after a while so was thinking I might need to do this.

Hope you like it!! And if you haven't already, make sure you check out my facebook page 'My Flutterfly' for some cute kids onesies and tops I have recently posted.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
