Handmade Journal

Today I have a handmade journal to share with you. I started out to create a gratitude journal, but decided to make it do double duty by adding currently journal pages to it as well.  I sent this fun little canvas book to my niece along with a set of colored pens.
 For step by step instructions on creating this little canvas book: Visit today's post on the Cropstop blog.
