A MAGIC YEAR

The last journal is wrapped and ready to mail out to Stephanie tomorrow. This has truly been a magical year.Each month a new journal to work in and a new color palette. My pages will complete Stephanie's journal. It has been pretty special to see one fully completed journal and also exciting to know that soon Stephanie will get to see all these beautiful journal pages up close.



Stephanie likes flowers and fairies, so I incorporated those into her pages using my grandmother as my inspiration for the flowers and the fairie. The photo is an actual picture of my grandmother, she loved flowers and pressed them for years into bookmarks. 


 Since I am the last one to work in Steph's journal, I am not sure how I ended up doing the very first two pages ,LOL.  I actually did do three because there were just three pages left and this would complete the Amazing PURPLE Journal.

                                          


 This is the  third page and picture of my grandmother. She would be so happy to see  her photo in this journal among all the flowers!  

 This is a little envelope made from a large book tag folded in half. The little glass charm
on the ribbon has a real pressed flower that has been added to a vintage watch crystal.


I added her picture to the back of this little tag envelope since she is my "Flower Fairie"

 The card and tag on the left opens up to this picture below:

 Thank you my dear sweet friends for allowing me to dance and play, relax and dream in 
all your journals. As each beautiful journal left my hands, the sweet fragrance of your friendship remains!
 XO

Your Grandmother is beautiful and definitely looks at home in a garden of flowers. How lovely that you would include her and share her with Stephanie. I love the way you've transformed Stephanie - she looks fab in her joy filled vibrant colours.
