For my project I purchased a journal from the NOW $1.50 bin at Michael's.  It came already decorated, so my contributions were pretty minimal.

My darling image is "Un-Anchor Tilda" #216.  She was just perfect for this theme!  She is an older image and no longer available in the regular size, but there is a Mini image available.
The Wooden Anchor is also from a bin at Michael's, the ribbon's tied to the coils are from my stash.

Here is a closer look at her.  She is colored with Copic markers on Cryogen White cardstock.  The mat around her is Real Red from SU.  The little gingham is a retired SU ribbon.  I use this with great care as they no longer sell it and I loved their pretty gingham.

I wanted to add a ribbon for a page marker so I had to come up with a unique way to attach it.  I had already colored this darling #253 American Bow Tilda.  I popped her on some SU Pacific Point CS attached the ribbon to the back of the journal and then secured her on top.  She is REALLY secured!  I used a heap of 1/2" ScorTape available from Diana at ScorPal.

I needed something to weigh the ribbon down so I went looking through my button bin.  I had two of these heart shaped buttons, ran a little Baker's Twine through the holes and then glued the buttons back to back sandwiching the ribbon between. 

So here's one more quick look at my journal...

Time to heave-ho for now, maties.  Hope you'll sail on over the the Challenge Blog and sit a spell with us under the Jolly Roger.

Many blessings,
