My Soul Food / Documented Life Journal

This morning I finished my journal for Grace Howes lesson in Soul Food. The only thing more fun than creating a journal? Filling it up!!!
 Of course, bright colors. I used DecoArts American paints
 I added in some papers from a DCWV paper pad that have these awesome die cut edges.

 And some vintage bags I can use as pockets.
Here's a close up of the pendant hanging from the front. I had made it a while back and had it my stash. The "bezel" is the back off of a watch. I filled it with some little trinkets including vintage music papers and a rhinestone off of some vintage jewelry. 
I am going to have this double duty for my Document Life journal. I don't document to the extent that a lot of people do but that's just A Okay!!
