The pages are in the cover. I had a great time creating the pages: sewing on collage pieces. The 2 signatures were machine sewn together then hand stitched to the cover. I'm tickled with the result. Now, all that's left is to insert photos and journal. And that's a big order. I have to decide what the journal's going to be about. I'm thinking about journaling my "artist's" routine. We'll see after the new year.
