My attempt at journaling!

I keep looking at everyone else's journaling and asking myself if I could do it. I've always wanted to but I'm such a chicken! Anyway, yesterday, I took the plunge. I walked into Borders and bought myself a large, unpretentious scrapbook album (it was $2.99; plain green cover and LOTS of empty white pages). I saved the image of the woman (below) because I just loved the expression on her face. I knew that I wanted to art and journal based on this picture. Here is my first attempt that I completed last night. I'm VERY happy about the way it came out!
