The first section of mine is rather interactive, then I got more decorative.

The notebook I used has 70 pages and I decorated/embelished/enhanced a little over half of them, some more than others. There are lots of spaces to write, draw, or embelish more.

APRIL-what an absolutely stunning junk journal. So many beautiful pages and so many for me to decorate as well. I just love it.





Your journal will go out tomorrow April. ThankYou Jean for hosting such a fun swap.

Denise, I received my junk journal on Friday but busy weekend. But I just love it and I can not tell which pages your granddaughter did. She is good. Thank you so much. I am still working on yours. Have a few more pages to do. But getting close. I will let you know when I mail it. Thank you again Denise.

Farmgirl Hugs & May all your Wishes come true.

This is so much fun. I love these journals. So many different ways to do them.
Some things I order, some things I cut out of magazines. When I go to the library
they have magazines for 10.cents, cut out stuff from them. Sometimes when I go to the
thrift store they have a bag of old greeting cards and I cut them up. Its just fun to
do. Then of course the best part is getting mail and pictures from all of you.

I'm happy you liked it, Julie, enjoy filling all it's pages!

I use some as personal journals, others as travel journals, others yet as annual scrap books with our family adventures or notes and memories. A girl can never have too many. I only hope my kids and grandkids will appreciate them and enjoy looking through them when I'm long gone.

Here are some pictures of the Junk Journal I made for Marlene. I used selvege fabrics for the slip-on cover, and a Moda tie-strip from a jelly roll set of strips for a bow closure. Other rubber-stamped pieces were used throughout that Marlene can color in and I left pages for her to decorate and write on. These are just a few of the decorated pages. I also added a happy birthday envelope made out of a napkin and a birthday greeting inside.









I hope you enjoy it Marlene.

So glad you got it Sherry. Not quite as fancy as everyone else's looks but I'm glad you like it. Left lots of room for you to do journaling or embellishing.

I think all of the journals are unique - everyone has different ideas, and that's what is so much fun!

Afternoon Denise, yours is in the mail. I'm sorry for the lateness but I just got so caught up in it and had to make myself stop and just put it in the mail. Enjoy, you should have it on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone.
