Back to the Beginning...

On Saturday I posted about the first inside spread of the new journal I have begun.  Since then, I have been working on doing the outside cover.  I created the tree because of a wonderful quote I found that says, 'Storms make trees take deeper roots." Trees, to me, also symbolize strength and stability and they can be so interesting and majestic!
