It's a new year and a leap year! An extra day to start and finish things. I'm excited, and have been busy planning what I might do with a bonus day - I don't want to waste it.
This year I broke with tradition and my first project was not a new journal cover. I know, it was a bit of a shock to me too. It is the first time in years that I haven't sat down on the 1st January and made one.
All I wanted to make was this notepad cover. I couldn't concentrate on anything else until I finished putting it together.
I was very tempted to repeat this on the 2012 journal cover but felt it was too similar to last years. Afterall it's a new year and it needs to be embraced with a new look.
So I went with a little bit of whimsy.
