crafting journals

I did these journals 2 winters ago... and recently discovered 
these pictures in my craft archives.  
At the time I was really happy with them and they were more "art", 
but now I want to pull them out and start journaling!  
I made them by purchasing cheap composition books, glitter, buttons, 
ribbons, and craft paper. It was really just a collage-fest!  
I did some with my friend and it was a time of laughter and a fun project to do together!

Any words on the journal that are in the black stickers below
come from my own personal poetry! I have hundreds of poems,
and is another hobby of mine.

Have any of you made journals?  It is so fun to personalize them
and with all the materials I have laying around it is easy to fill them!
Next time I make one, I would do more of a vintage feel with lighter colors.

Have a great weekend!
