~* My JoUrNeY *~ an altered album







Okay Mr. Tim Holtz! I actually altered your grungeboard album! It was inside my "Bon Voyage Dahlings" guest design kit from Keep in Touch! I have to admit I was a little intimidated by it for a second. Okay, for a few minutes! But because Kelly had such a beautiful collection of papers and tons of pretty embellishments in this kit for me to play with, I went into "creative mode" pretty quickly!
Have I mentioned that I love Kelly?"
Though this is a travel inspired kit, it was very versatile in that I made it into a journey not of travel, but of myself- a uniQue journal all about me including my thoughts, my beliefs, and what makes me tick! We are all uniQue, and it's not only fun, but important I think to get it on paper in our own creative way!
Speaking of journeys, on a personal note I will be spending some quality time with my family for the next few days before school rolls around for the kiddos again. I'm really looking forward to this special family time! So, it really is "Bon Voyage Dahlings" for now!

Enjoy a bit of family fun!! Thanks for leaving us inspiration in this fab book. You are right, we should get things down in words, but sometimes it's hard to do. Maybe I'll give it a go one day soon.
