I’ve been wanting to transform a mini composition journal I’ve had for quite some time. I had some ideas in mind, but nothing seemed to motivate me to really sit down and pull the ideas together.
Then a few days ago my neighbor’s mother passed away. We’ve known our neighbor and her family for 19 years. My son grew up with her eldest son and daughter (twins), and I’ve watched all four of her children grow to be fine young adults. I wanted to do something special for her, so I sat down and worked on the journal.
I painted the binding, and used some lovely scrapbook paper for the cover. Then I decorated it with some lace and leaves from a wonderful package I won from Terri at Artful Affirmations. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Thank you for visiting Leisure Lane. I hope you enjoyed the little rose journal.
Until next time, may happy days abound!
