Tell Your Story Journal

So I am officially caught up with my Tell Your Story journal... and the class hasn't even started yet.. oops. I made an extra page because I'm cool like that. I call it my cover page, so original right? I was so happy that the weather is finally warm enough to take pics outside, so that's just what I did. I Used nature as my background!

The journal I used (if anyone is curious) was one like this. Mine has black pages though, that I painted. I also painted the front cover. It was normally the Kraft color and it took me awhile to get around the spiral part, but I love the way it turned out. Simple and cute :)

I was inspired by the Elsie painting I just bought, the treasure map symbols came out sooo cute (took forever trying to get paint everything even though :)

Here is the cover page I made, my introduction to my introduction you could say...

It took me forever to make this page, I think because of having to wait on the stamps and the Stickles to dry. Oh and the paint, I used a pretty blue grey color.

And here is my first 2 pages. I did them a little different then the directions.

Instead I used words I would use to describe myself :)

The next page I wrote down some things that I love :)

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!! Tonight is scary movie night at my house, but before that we are going to a carnival at Hayden's school!! FUN!!! :D
