FWF: Embrace Your Funky Self Journal

Stamps: Unity by Melody Ross-One Of A Kind set
Paper:  Crate Paper Restoration DP
Accessories:  vintage lace and buttons, rhinestones from my stash, crate paper chipboard element, safety   pin

Hello!  I couldn't remember if I had shared this journal on my blog yet. If I have, so sorry! I tried to go back and find it, and after 5 minutes just decided to post it (I am not a patient gal)!  For today's Free 4 All challenge on SCS, we were to make anything but a card.  I made this several months ago, but thought it was worth sharing.

Having three kids makes for busy days that sometimes seem chaotic at best.  I am REALLY far behind on my scrapbooking, so I decided to keep a little notebook or journal in my purse, so that when my kids say something that I want to remember, I will have it recorded on paper.  It always makes me so mad when I try to think back on a moment, and know that one of the boys said something profound or just darn cute, but I can't remember it EXACTLY.  This has helped me out a great deal.  I will admit that sometimes I am even too busy to drag it out of my purse and write, but I am certainly catching more than I ever used to.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Emily

What a great idea! Glad you are keeping track of the great "quote" material in your notebook. You prettied it up so nicely!! You'd be crazy *not* to use such a sweet journal. :)
