a little more on the journal...

Hey girls!

Just wanted to pop in with a few more details about the journal/scrapbook for Chelle. Leslie told me that she really loved hers, so I am thinking that we should make Chelle's the same way...

* The journal itself will be 8x8 inches large

* Please make the pages no bigger than 8x8 inches and no smaller than 3x3 inches- I love how for Leslie's they all ended up being different random sizes!

* Please leave a 1/4 inch to 1/2 margin open on the left side without any writing or detail work on it. This way none of your lovely work will be cut off when I put it all together.

* Feel free to make as many pages as you want. For Leslie's some people made just one or two pages, while others did as many as five!

* You may use one side of the paper, or both. Both sides will be visable in the journal.

* Feel free to use any kind of paper, fabric, pictures, whatever to create your pages! I think that the beauty of these journals is in fact that they are made up of all kinds of random textures and color.

* You may include anything, as far as writing goes, on your pages. Some ideas: words of wisdom, quotes, poems, verses, photos/pictures, letters to Chelle...

* The deadline for sending in pages is: Tuesday, March 10 (that is about one month away), but the earlier the better!

* Please send me an email (talesofacraftymamaATgmailDOTcom) to sign up and I will send you an email reply with my home address.

I can't wait to see all of your beautiful pages!

P.S. Either Leslie or I will try to post some photos of her finished journal for you to see in the next few days...

Oh Ladies...... this will touch Chelle greatly. I for one (looks like EVERYONE included) love this idea. I feel badly that I was not more involved with Leslie's I did not see pictures, and am excited to see them when they get posted. :)
I tend to be an over thinker. Which makes this a difficult one for me.
I will try to get my thoughts to round out to a whole. lol!
Loves and so excited!

I love love love that this will be getting to her first though...leaving her even more surprised by all the goodies later on!! Is there a time that we tentatively thinking for the gifts? I just want to make sure that if its while I'm gone then i can go ahead and mail my goodies to someone??
