Dreamy Journal

Hi Everyone! Are you all having a great summer? It is hard to believe that we are almost through our first week in August already. YIKES! Since summer is a time for dreaming and being creative, I decorated this small journal for recording ideas, memories and dreams. What would you put into such a journal? Maybe lists of places you would like to visit, a diary of what you do on any particular day, a drawing or two? Maybe some photographs or movie ticket stubs to remind you of a special date? Perhaps you might record a poem, or a song that is special to you - the possibilities are endless!
Here are the quick details of this easy to do journal:
First, I printed and colored and image from this digi stamp set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff . I used my scalloped nesties to die cut the image and the border. I layered the scalloped pieces and patterned paper onto the cover. Next, I added a Prima flower and a couple of leaves along with a piece of printed ribbon. A punched corner for the top and done! As I am sitting here looking at it, I am thinking I could have tied some ribbons to the spiral binding for a little added texture and color. Hmmmm...maybe I will take it back to the craft room and do that...
This was a quick, simple project that would make a cute gift or something nice to keep for yourself and you can buy this or any other stamp set this weekend at Mygrafico for 40% off!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend Everyone!!!!

this is too cute. I actually have one I made for myself to jot down quotes. I need to make another one though...

Yours is adorable with or without the extra ribbon. :-)
