I finished it!

German Phrase of the Day: Nachste Woche fahren wir in Urlaub. = We're leaving on a vacation next week. Actually, we leave on Sunday...but you get the point!

I just finished my initial pages for my circle journal I'm doing with Michelle Tweedy, and I'm SO excited! Since we have friends arriving from California on Friday morning, my dh doesn't get home until SATURDAY morning, and then Sunday morning we leave for the Black Forest, I figured I needed to finish quickly so I can get it in the mail.

I've never done a circle journal before, but I'm really excited about this one. I think it will be loads of fun. Over the next 5 days I'll post all the pages I had to complete before mailing it...since I won't have time to stamp anything else because I'll be too busy trying to get the house clean before our guests arrive!!

This first one is my title page. The theme of my book is All Things Nature, and I used one of my all-time favorite nature sets for the title page. I'm also a little into butterflies lately since we have so many on our Butterfly Bush (thanks to everyone who helped identify it!!) Not sure if you can tell, but I outlines the butterfly wtih glue and added some dazzling diamonds so she would really sparkle.

You can probably see I have not done anything with the cover of my journal yet...I decided it would be safer to do that after the rest of the pages are completed and it's done with its tour of the US!! ;-)

Have a wonderful day everyone! Just 3 more sleeps til my catty gets here - and, oh yeah - guess my husband will be with it!! ;-)
