Sharing some Flower Soft goodness

It's a blog hop day for the Flower Soft DT. The challenge for today is using Flower Soft to create a border.
I created a little Gratitude journal. It is about 5" square and I used my Bind It All tool to punch the holes and to bind my journal. My border is these super cute little flower stamps by Pink Persimmon and the middles of them are decorated with Ultra Fine Flower Soft in Citrus Crush. If you recall, I mentioned before that the best adhesive to use with the Flower Soft is Aleene's Tacky Glue and Flower Soft sells it in a great applicator with a tiny tip. The flowers were colored with Copic markers.
The inside pages are copier paper cut to size and I stamped these words on each page. My thought for my little journal was that it could be used at Thanksgiving for each family member to record what they are grateful for.
From my blog, hop on over to Jacque's blog for more goodness. There is a prize at the last blog in the hop, leave a comment there and become a follower of the Flower Soft blog.
