Easter Greetings!

Happy Easter!

Thank goodness we've all managed to survive a very long and difficult Winter! Seeing pansies and daffodils makes my heart sing with happiness. Blue skies and puffy, white clouds are a blessing. This is Cosmo's first Spring, so I'm seeing and experiencing everything with "new eyes" . . . There's nothing quite like watching a puppy chase his first bug!!! LOL!!! Life is good. We've been blessed many times over.

During the past few months I've been participating in the "Documented Life Project", and my Moleskine planner is getting chubbier and chubbier!!! This weeks prompt was to integrate "food boxes" into our spread and embellish them. I chose to use color copies of a few boxes of tea, chicken soup AND a box of Samoa Girl Scout cookies. To be honest, I really didn't want to open that darn box cookies, plus I wanted to cut down on the bulk in my journal pages.

I found an old scrapbook punch and cut the scalloped circles in half to form my border. Out came my white Sharpie poster paint pen and white acrylic paints. The paint circles were stamped with an old plastic lid. Voila!!! I had a pretty, lacey-looking border for my spread.

I've had several inquiries about the DLP. If you're interested in learning more, click here to go to the "Art to the 5th" website. All of the information is there, as well a few free tutorials. It's never too late to join in the journaling fun.

Sending wishes and blessings for a beautiful Spring celebration!

Your new journal is so cheerful. Hard to believe you recycled all those "junk" food item packages in your creation. It's turning out great!
