FIRST!!! I want to welcome my new followers!!! Helllloooo!!!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hi!
I am so in love with this class!! I am journaling everyday since the class started and the creative juices are flowing! I want to apologize in advance though for the horrible picture quality. My original plan was to have a photo shoot outside but we woke up this morning to snow (ummm hello it's MAY!, I guess North Dakota didn't get that memo..:( no fun!) so I took pics in my basement which has hardly any light to use.
This is the only journal page I blacked out some things. I felt it was too personal to share. I wanted to show how I did the border and my layout so that's why it's being posted.
Lots of Japanese tape was used on this page and I love it!!
For this page, fabric was used for the letters and the mini-bunting :)
I absolutely loved making this page, it's so pretty and simple!
I know I'm so mushy, I love these 2 pics and I'm going to miss him terribly when he deploys in a few weeks. The apples and pears background is fabric I got from a thrift store in Springfield.
I dedicated this one to my kids, I hope one day when they read this, they will smile :)
This one is kinda hard to read because of the silver pen I used. I can read it easily in person, but the camera didn't pick it up well... I wrote what it says under the pic.
"Thoughts on being a military wife"
Being a military wife is one of the biggest struggles for me right now. I'm about to face my first deployment. I know I should be counting my lucky stars, being a military wife for 7 years and not going through a deployment yet. I still can't help feeling scared anxious, overwhelmed, and sad. There are perks though, a steady paycheck, free health care, housing and a sense of pride knowing my husband is fighting for our country, for our freedom. I love you Joseph and wouldn't trade our lives for anything. It can be hard, but we will make it through the tough times together.
This one I cut out heart shapes from various magazines for different colors and textures.
I saw this when I looked out my window this morning...
Will someone please send me some sun?!?
I hope everyone has a great weekend, I'm off to work on today's journal page!!
What are your plans?
