Password Journal

This is an idea I saw on You Tube, and have wanted to make for myself for a while.  I made myself a template in Powerpoint for the pages and printed them out.  For the covers, I used chipboard, and covered them with paper from Prima's Princess collection.  I then added a Tim Holtz Ornate frame, stamped out the word passwords, and embellished it with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks to Robin from injoystampin on You Tube for the idea.  Here is a link to her video:
