From artist extraordinaire, Roxi Phillips, I learned how to create this wonderful book. It's simply too much fun to make, even MORE fun to journal in. This book has long envelopes inserted into each signature in which to store those little loose treasures. I've made about 5 books like this, each in a different & fun color. One was a gift for a neighbor who takes care of my house & critters when I have leave on a trip. This book is a little over 11" tall. The spine has decorative fibers & beads dancing down the outside.
