Circle Journal - final Entry

I had the priveledge of doing a wonderful circle journal project organized by Michelle Tweedy. And while we all got off track on occasion, I'm so excited to say I have finished and mailed my final journal.

This last one I got was for recipes. For me, one of my all-time favorite treats from Maine is Whoopie Pies. I know I've written of them often on my blog...and they are such a wonderful treat I can't help myself! I also thought the title Making Whoopie would be fun to include!! :-)

I used some Berry Bliss paper to cover the pages after punching it with my spiral notebook punch. For the title side I layered Close to Cocoa on Pretty in Pink on Whisper white. I stamped the Making with Newsprint Alpha and Whoopie with my Jumbo Outline Alphabet both in Chocolate Chip ink, coloring the overlapped areas with a versamarker. I then added the grosgrain ribbon to the bottom. For the opposite page, I made a little pocket with some more Berry Bliss DSP, adding a close to cocoa button. Then, I tucked the recipe in the pocket, giving it a little tag first. It was pretty simple, but I'm quite happy with the result, and I hope Allison enjoys the recipe!

Thanks for checking in today. Hopefully we're getting settled into the house by now, and we've managed to get Julia registered for Kindergarten. This will be her 3rd year of it...altho her first at an American kindergarten! ;-) Have a wonderful day!
