SO now 11 more to go!!!  it is really making me think differently about journaling and layouts.  i finished 3 of them today and made the others.  I found it easier to make the backgrounds all together then go back and write al the journaling.  Think I got that idea from Teesha Moore.

Tomorrow, really is Wednesday so I will try to run around and see as many as possible at WOYWW .     SAY HII TO JULIE

Oh yes I actually gave all my fabrics away YESTERDAY.  Feel a bit light headed.  lets face it if you don't use it in 10 years......
