Journalling Challenge

Hi :)

It's Kathy here.

I used to scrapbook many years ago but then my love of cardmaking took over.
My youngest daughter doesn't even have an album and is always asking where her photos are and why she doesn't have a special book too :(
I have really wanted to get back into scrapping for her AND for me.
So I made a New Years Resolution that I was going to DO IT!
And I HAVE :)
Being on the fabulous team at Mystical Scrapbooks is really going to help me achieve my goals.

So this is my first page after taking a very long scrapbooking break :)



It is my turn to create a challenge for the Mystical Scrapbooks blog and I decided to make it about journalling.
The challenge is to make a kind of journalling border around your photos.
I hope you'll join in and make a page, I can't wait to see what you create!

It can be any kind of journalling.  I decided to just write the Who and Where and then I looked in a Thesaurus for synonyms for Explore, which is my title.
Because I haven't been keeping up with my scrapping, I have forgotten a lot of the details and little stories that go along with the photos.  That's what can happen unfortunately and exactly why scrapping current photos is such a great idea.  But anyway, I just had to get a bit creative :)

I used Core'dinations Essentials cardstock and tore a strip of it to resemble (loosely :) ) rocks. I also distressed the matt around the photos.  Then I used another matt that I did the journalling around.

The gorgeous paper is Basic Grey - Olivia and I also used some Kaisercraft Pearls - Snow.
I made the title using Thickers - Hello Amy.  I love this alphabet!  The fabric adds a lot of texture and I love the stitched look and the font is so fun!

So I've made a start! I hope you'll join me on my journey and we can experiment and learn together :)

(And one of the first things I need to learn is how to take better photos of scrapbook pages! ha ha :))
