My retreat journal that is. I've only been making it since last May! I did the pages themselves first and printed the photos, but I seem to have some sort of allergy against sticking photos into journals. I just freak out as I don't do scrapping and sticking photos in is scrapping in my book. It has sat in a drawer for months, but I took the journal with me to Lynne's last week and got stuck into it.
Sadly, during the week I broke the 'h' of friendship, which is a Maya Rd chip word and I need to do a bit of repairing.
Since I got home I've been punching circles and sticking them on, just to finish off.
I had all sorts of ideas about putting the photos onto card that was folded and tied into the journal somehow, but when it came down to it I just made pockets and used that instead. If I hadn't, I would have been and returned from this year's retreat.
It was such a good weekend last year and I'm really looking forward to May again.
If you look at the above photo, you can see that we did actually manage to do some crafting as well as gossiping and eating; and you can see the huge table we used.
The pages are Teresa Collins and then I cut some thick card into shape to make it a fat and messy journal, just my style! I think the patterned paper is MME.
I was completely surprised and happy yesterday to see that my Stampotique chick card made it into the top 3 for the Spring has Sprung Challenge!! That type of thing doesn't happen to me - but I am chuffed it did this time.
