In like a lion...

Happy March...
I can't believe it's March 1st. Time is flying by.

22 days until the new house. So much packing to do.

Sydney's over 8 lbs now and smiling!


So, to ring in Spring, I joined Jaime's newest venture: a Celebration Journal.

As this progresses, I will be posting my work here on my blog. I'm hoping this will help me relax and inspire me as well as provide a much needed creative outlet that I can do during this hectic time.


To start things off, here is the cover of my journal as well as the first two pages:
The cover is very simple - MAMBI patterned paper that reminds me of spring. It's one of my favorite patterned papers. I just love the colors. Wordsworth letter stickers and a silk flower. I have it bound together with twine at the moment. Until I can get to Staples to get binder rings, it will remain that way.
For the second page, I just washed it with ink and decided to write down the definitions to the three words that form the heart of this journal: inspiration, celebration & life.
Page three is actually the 'first' page of the journal. It explains my reason for keeping this journal. I simply tabbed the beginning of March with some cardstock and stamped on a flower border.
Finally, I found these great Ziploc storage bags hiding under my sink and I thought it would be perfect to hold my wee album & the bits of inspiration I may come across.

Lovely start to your journal. I am playing along too. I like the definitions idea - might have to scraplift it if you don't mind?
