Two Altered Journals...

Both of my older girls needed a regular composition book for school.  So, of course we bought the regular black and white ones when that were on sale at Target and since they are MY daughters (ha-ha), they asked if they were allowed to cover them.  To our delight, both of their teachers said that they could.  They are both no longer in the "pink and glittery" stage.  I told them to go through my paper stash to see what caught their eye.  They both liked the DCWV paper stack called Immortal Love.  I guess it would be an understatement to say that it is Twilight inspired.  Anyway, these are the books after I got done with the paper, mod podge, ribbon, etc. =)  Easy peasy and cheap.  Both girls were happy.
