I finished up my LO for the Circle Journal group I'm participating in that Andrea is hosting. It was Cheryl's journal and oh boy I LOVED what this girl did! She took an old insurance policy wallet that had the original envelopes and created her journal from that. SO BRILLIANT! To see the full journal, check out Cheryl's blog here. So instead of each participant completing a page, we each got an envelope. The theme is "Destination" and we are to alter our envelope and then write a letter about where we're going in life -- our dream destination! I told you, this circle journal is very cool!
For my envelope, I just HAD to take it out of the book. I wanted to do some sewing on it so I also unglued the envelope so it would lay flat. I used Scrapper's Solution which I only recently discovered. Love this stuff and now I use it all the time!
Okay...so here's the envelope, in progress...
Then here's the completed envelope with lots of stitching and junk. I was really pleased with how this all came out. I liked it so much I even just ordered me up a fresh batch of Moo cards with this on it! :-)
...some of my favorite bits...
And then the back.
For my letter, I started with a cool piece of scrapbook paper and then altered it all. Here's the outside, folded...
...and the inside. I wrote some stuff on it but it's just blah blah blah about goals and what not so I decided not to bore you with it all. :-)
Okay, so on to the next project! I have in my possession Rena's "Hope" journal from the round robin that Elise is hosting and I just received the hostess herself's circle journal, Andrea's. Her theme is "Color!" And it's another really cool one! Oh boy!
Oh in movie news, I watched Mrs. Palfrey at The Claremont last night. LOVED it! What a lovely lovely movie. Kinda sad at times, but SO uplifting at other times you appreciate where it takes you. Thanks for the recommendation Mom!!! I tried to watch La Vie En Rose this weekend too but we couldn't get the subtitles to work. Dangit! I'm gonna give it another shot though...it just looks so good!
