I was totally stoked about this week’s StampInsanity Challenge. We were to use something metallic on your project - papers, embellies, hardware, etc. Well, being a silversmith…this was SO up my alley!

A Pillow Book is a diary of sorts. It doesn't just talk about the day's events, but contains lists, observations, conversations, musings, anything the writer feels like writing about really. 21st Century is because this is a modern pillow book, since it's done on a computer.
