summer journal

a quick project - similar to the December Daily project
is to decorate a blank book to record your summer adventures in.

 this white blank book was part of a Kit i purchased over at My Masterpiece Art Studio

it came with some travel paper and various stickers and embellishments. using Modge Podge i was able to cut and paste the front cover into a collage.
there are only 15 pages in the journal so about a page-spread per week of summer. my friend made one for her summer trip to Europe to use as a true travel journal. i'm sticking closer to home this summer so mine will probably include:

my summer 2011 list
(things i want to do, be, have, overcome and give)
a summer poem
or two
or three
a movie ticket stub
a lock of blonde hair...(hopefully, by late August)
some grains of sand
my favorite summer photographs
of bliss
and sunshine
water splashes and sunscreen smears

summer layout

Tannis Ross shared this cheerful summer layout using Creative Memories "Cheerful Summer 12x12 Additions".  I just love it! I hope it brightens your day! Just 2 more weeks of school here but the sun is shining bright today and I'm ready for summer, summer, summer....
