Peace Wreck this Journal Amber

Wow I can't believe I didn't share with you all the 2 Journals / Books I made.
Haven't put anything inside of them yet.   

The first one was made for my sons Girlfriend.  She had so much fun with a store bought
journal called Wreck This Journal that I wanted to make her one.

She loves anything colorful.  So I let her choose the Scrapbook paper to cover the book with. And is MAJORLY into Zebra print.  So she wanted to put some on the binding.

Now let me show you the back first.  I layed the pretty paper down making sure the Peach signs were facing the right way.

Ok now don't laugh, but I layed out the paper just right again for the front of the book.  BUT didn't realize when you put the book into readable position, the peace signs were now 
upside down.

Ok it is kind of funny.  I couldn't wait for Ambers book to be finished.  
I did so much work sewing my pages together
and then getting her binding right.  Guess next time I need to pay
better attention.  

Here is some of the things I wrote down for her to do on the inside

1- using different kinds of lipsticks kiss all over one of the pages.

2- Write down each of your families members names one at a time.  Then beside the name or under or above the name draw a drawing of what comes to mind when you think of this person.

3- Draw 2 columns.   Title one color boys names and one girls names.  Then write under neath them names that you might name your children if you had 12 kids.

4- Using magazines, sales ads, junk mail.......... cover one page with words starting with the letter

5- Write down 50 things you love.

6- Using your LEFT hand draw a picture of your boyfriend/ husband/ brother/ best friend.

7- Using Card Stock or sturdy paper.  Take a butter lid that is round.  Draw a circle in middle of the paper.  Take scraps of paper from anything..... construction paper, magazines, junk mail etc. cover the other side just in the middle where circle is.  Hold up to the light so you don't cover more than you need to. (going to far outside the circle lines.  When dry, cut out the circle glue it on a page and name your art.  Don't forget to sign and date it.

8- Using magazines cut out pictures of things you like and make a collage on a 2 page layout.

9- write a short poem on one page.

10 - Write a song about a dog.

11- Draw a picture or cut out one from a magazine and write a short funny poem or story that you might find in a childrens book.

12- What are your favorite foods and drinks...... Find pictures to glue beside each one.

13- Title page with Todays Date, Month and Year.  City and State you live in.
     Then put the following to look back over years from now.  Cost of each item.
Gas Price------------------Slushy-------------Shake-------------French Fries------------Whopper--------Milk------------Bread-----------Lays Potatoe Chips-------------2 Lt Bottle Soda------------
Monthly Phone Bill-----------Happy Meal------------- Movie Theater Ticket------------- Call a high school find out what the cost of a Year book is..............And Prom tickets.

What do you think.  Do you have an idea for what she should do on a page
in Ambers Wreck this Journal.  We would love to hear from you.

R.I.P Prince

Today is a sad day,
is the world coming to an end
Seems all the great ones are leaving this world.


You will be missed

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called Life
Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here to tell you
There's something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night
So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
You know the one, Dr. Everything'll
Be alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby
'Cause in this life
Things are much harder than in the after world
In this life
You're on your own
And if the Elevator tries to bring you down
Go Crazy, punch a higher floor
If you don't like the world you're living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends

My Zebra Baby Shower Invitations

Well just a few months back I got the good news that my
prior Foster Daughter is Pregnant.    She is very dear to me and
I consider her a daughter of mine.

Well I have been busy making her Baby Shower invitations.

What do you think?

The Pregnant lady is from a Tattered Lace Die by the
name of  Baby Shower

These are the foam piece that you put under your paper and die to help
you die cut through the paper and get all the pieces out easier. The pink
cut all the way through because I had two pieces of foam behind my card stock 
by accident.  I plan to use these instead of throwing them away.

Yes I save everything.  LOL

Where did I buy them from you might ask?

Click on the site to go there.

A friend told me to check out this site.  Just a warning it is addictive.  But on a good note I did a google search before placing my order.  I typed in Create and Craft Coupons.

I was able to get free shipping and $10 off my order.  So I now know I will always look for
coupons now before I place an order on any site.

The Great Outdoors Journal

More pages more Journals.   Here is my last post about My Journal

My Traveling Art Journal My First Entry

The last entry into the journal said I forgot to take a photo once I added the Fairies.  Well since then the journal came back into my hands.  So I was able to snap a photo of the finished page.  

I also added this tree to the page with the hills.  I need to do more but not sure what I want to add now that I have the Journal back.  Any suggestions???

Here are some art that others have added to my book

I will try to put who did each page.  I hate sharing without giving credit, but they signed the front of the Journal and not the page they did.  I need to take a photo of the Deer Write up about Deer on the page above.  It has some really fun neat information.

This has been so much fun.  I would like to do a swap with others.  But I don't think I want to send my Journal back out.  I'm thinking what might be more fun is for others to do a page for my journal and me do one for there journal.  Then swap them out in the mail.  Once there are arrives then I add it into my Journal.  That way it never leaves my home but it gets filled with fun art from others around the world.  And it would be so much Cheaper than mailing out the entire journal.

Want to join?  Let me know.

Bookmarks fun to make

Seems each time I turn around I forget to post on my blog.  If everyone that reads my blog only  knew how much I have to say but forget to say here. So I decided I better get posting.  Here are my latest book marks.

The London Book mark was bought then I added the 
Forrest Green Card Stock, the scrapbook paper, lace doily, clock and bling.

I added the same things to this book mark.

This one is made out of Balsa Wood.
I added the Hunter Green Card Stock,
Blue back ground to her dress,
Dotted Ribbon and the Words stamped on.

I did the same to this one.  Now I am going to use these to trade with others on a FaceBook Group I am on.  Ladies post a Bookmark and then if you like it you can say I want that one.  BUT ONLY if you already have one finished that you can post ASAP.  (As Soon As Possible).  Then someone sees yours and they post one in place of it and you send your bookmark to them.  It is a lot of fun.  You get to have fun creating a book mark.  Then you get to make someone's day when they get it in there mail box.  And most fun, is you get a book mark handmade by another crafter in your mail box.
