Journal Journey's Ch03

Hello and good morning to you all where ever you may be ;0) Well can you believe it's September already? The months are flying by and already there is talk of the C word (Christmas) Stop! I don't want to face that so early please! ;0) All the children will be back at school any day now, so your really excited or really sad. Some will be going off to big school and others, school for the first time it's all too much for us mothers. One of my babies is off to university so we will all be traveling from Manchester to London to drop him off. Sad but happy moment. Any way enough natter from me. I hope September is good to you ;0) And what of this months Journal Challenge?

This month I would like you to think of:-


I do hope you are going to have fun with this, I would like you to add an inclusion (something stuck to the middle of a spread that you can see both sides of when turned over) or a tag. Here is a little inspiration from me below.

I went a little mad lol So, have any of you done this before? If not don't be put off. I have added a large tag which I put a list on & decorated and just use some clear sticky tape, then I have used two smaller tags and also attached with some clear tape. There are wonderful tapes that are on the craft market or you can just use electrical tape, sew it in or even use glue. I hope to see lots of variety this month as it's a technique!  It would be so nice if you could add my button to your blog to spread the word so others can come and play too ;0) Love Dawn xx

The winner of the fairy book from last months fairy challenge was Joanne please e-mail me Joanne.

Please remember to include a link to your post not just your blog and also a link in your post to my blog thank you Dxx

Cool!! I would never have thought of that. I've very neglectful of my journal this summer...perhaps I should get back to it...if I could just stay away from the outdoors when I'm off work :)

Hugs from an excited Joanne ('cos I won) xxxxx

I have not often seen a spread that thrilled me as much as this one!! I like the simplicity - it's not too busy. The color is lovely, and the ink contrasts it so nicely. Effective use of the stamps, too. Just a thoroughly wonderful spread!!!

I also like the challenge this month!
