Journals, journals and more journals!

For whatever reason, Blogger wouldn't let me upload any pictures for about a week. It kept telling me it was aware of the problem and they were working on it. I was about ready to just toss my computer across the room because all my other Blogger buddies were able to upload. ARGH!!!!!!! I hate being at the mercy of cyberspace!

OK...I vented!

I have worked on 3 RR journals and wanted to share them with you. All three are for one Yahoo group that I belong to. For some reason, the mailing got all screwy but at least they're all safe! The first spread is for Bonnie. She turns 60 this year and wanted that number represented somewhere on her spread. Her color was sepia and her theme was Time Flies.

This spread is for Donna. Her color was blue and she didn't have a theme. I work so often with vintage images that I thought a change would be good for me. I like the way this came out...

This is for Martha. Her colors were whites, pastels and a hint of red. Her journal is an old children's dictionary. What a fun book to work in! The photo is of relatives of mine whom I never met. Unfortunately they perished in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. I like using pictures of my relatives when I can; it makes me feel like they didn't die in vain.

The last of the Circle Journals is finished!

What a fun RR this was. I participated in a Circle Journal where everyone picked a word that they wanted to focus on and the layouts related to that. These pages are for Heather, the originator of the Circle Journal. Her word was FEAR. Her entire journal was done in black, reds and whites so I stayed with her color theme. I hope she likes it!

The last 2 are finished!!!!!!!!!!

These 2 make a total of 48 made! Phew...I feel like I ran a long marathon. But now they're done and they were a LOT of fun to make. If I ever get the chance, I'm going to make a book of them for myself!!!

Almost done with my 3x3s...

I had a little hiatus from the 3x3s. Now I'm back to making them. I have 2 more to make and then I will have made a total of 48 of them! Holy cow; can't believe I made that many. The top 2 are a white theme. The one with the heart is for Barb. Believe it or not, there is birch tree bark under the white heart. The other one is for Paula; her theme is White Caps
