Scrap Journals in the Etsy shop

I just listed two Scrap Journals in the Etsy store. For those of you not familiar with the Scrap Journal, it is a hand-bound, recycled journal with bits of vintage ephemera for its pages. It is a relatively petite book at 4 1/2 x 6 inches.
The first one has a lovely color scheme, which is echoed throughout the interior pages. The graphics on the old sheet music cover are pretty fantastic too. Be sure to click on images for a larger view:

I love the swirling pattern on the cover of the second one. It reminded me of Spring rain, so I found an image to decoupage on the front of a girl dressed in flower petals and carrying an umbrella to shield her from Spring showers:
