Sewing and Journals

I've  been doing this n' that for about a week.  I was asked to make 8 little journals for sweet children in an Orphanage in Africa.  These were fun to make and I used the smaller pads, double-sided papers, a few of the Cricut carts and the bee and ladybug are from Sizzix Original dies. I added a little jewel on the front, and the inside pocket holds 4 envelopes with die cuts added.  I think the children will enjoy using these to write in.

My good friend Jane is going to be a grandmother for the first time.  I wanted to make something special so I did a baby blue flannel quilt.  The room decor is Noah's Ark.  I used an Anita Goodesign Applique/Embroidery Design CD to create this quilt.  Here is a close up of the elephant design.  so cute....doncha think?

Thanks for looking.
