Love theme coptic stitch journal

Today I'll like to share another coptic stitch album that I made over the weekend.  This album is based on a "Love theme" therefore I've used lots of pink for my layout. 

I used some pink patterned paper, flowers, heart shaped felt ribbons, doily paper, fabric owl button and some cardstock and cardboard to complete this simple love journal.

Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!  Happy Tuesday!
