Dream Big Journal

Remember the previous inspirational mail day post? Well I have finally made the journal for my friend who lost her job. I can't wait to give it to her -and I am hoping that she doesn't read my blog first! I am really happy with it and almost want to keep it (like everything I make!!!)...

The stamped image is from Stephanie over at ingenious inkling, the background paper is purely pomegranate and chocolate chip from SU, the striped paper is from the Spring Stack from DCWV, the ric rac ribbon is from the $1 bin at Target, the sticker is from my fav K&Co, oh and I finally used my cuttlebug circle/flower background embossing! The castle punch is from Dizzyland -always good to add a touch from the "happiest place on earth" for a 'pick me up' piece.



The ribbon dancing up the spiral stairs of the journal is actually from my friend's wedding. I was a bridesmaid (her colors were pink and brown) and the dress was strapless but it came with straps, so because I cannot throw anything away, I saved the straps in my ribbon scraps. I thought it was a nice touch to add a little memento from her wedding day to the 'dream journal'.

I just picked up this stamp today over at Paper Tales. I wanted to use it so I came back to your blog for my inspiration piece.
