First things first:

I want to show off my snazzy new journal with ze sexy pattern :)
It's a Paperchase scrapbook that was half off at Border's and therefore considerably cheaper than a Moleskine and will last considerably longer. It has thick square! kraft paper pages and I'm digging the spiral binding--I had so much trouble with the centers of my spreads cracking with my first (and only) moley sketchbook not to mention it just couldn't handle much 3D attitude. I learned to reinforce the centers with masking tape so that paint wouldn't leak to other pages as well as to be conscious of how each page functioned in the signature when I planned spreads and glued pages together. Not to mention I'm not fighting the Moleskine stigma where I'm afraid to mess my own journal up. That's just silly.
The only draw back is that I can't fit a whole page on my scanner bed.
Oh well. I'll just have to get creative.
