Joy to the World

My mother-in-love found this old hymnal at a thrift store and immediately knew I could use it to make a repurposed journal. cover2

Old books are so awesome because the covers feature different variations of embossing or debossing. So neat!

Since this was an old hymnal, I used sheet music scrapbook paper for the inside paste pages.

Sing it with me, y'all: Joy to the world, this book is done! :)
