My page

German Phrase of the Day: In einer Stunde sind wir da. = We will be there in an hour. Well, my catalog will be here in a little more than an hour. Unfortunately, my husband's plane is about 30 minutes late, so I still have almost 3 hours to wait for my precious catalog...but I'll survive! is my page for my circle journal. On the left side I used Bashful Blue with Sahara Sand. On the sahara sand I stamped some shells and sand background from the beach set from LAST summer's mini catalog, and the palm tree from my balmy breezes set which I colored with watercolor crayons. I sponged the edges as well. Then, I sent the vellum through my printer and printed with brown ink. I attached the vellum with brads. The journaling says "There is nothing more calming than the sound of the surf. And while I love the smells of the forest and the majesty of the mountains, it is the sounds of the ocean I can not live without. So please don't fence me in." I write this because my husband and I have often spoken of different places within the US where we could live...and I joke with him that as long as the state I live in has an ocean, I'm ok.

The photo on the right side is one I took when we went to Cabo San Lucas a few years ago. The quote on it says "eternity begins and ends with the ocean's tides."

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my journal. I can't wait until Christmas time when I will get it back with everyone else's pages as will be so much fun to see what other people have created.'s back to cards for me tomorrow.



  1. So pretty - that will be exciting to receive it back & see what others have added.

  2. Well Jana, you've raised a pretty high standard for the rest of us! I hope I can do justice to your awesome beginning!

  3. Stunning - so pretty, love the picture of the ocean. It's the only place to be, isn't it? We go down to my parents in Ocean Park (OOB) this week for a little vacation - can't wait! :)


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
