I signed up for The Sketchbook Project 2011 a while back! I thought oh this will be fun and cool. I can do this! The journal has to be post marked by January 15th. I have started this journal 2 times and did not like what I did. So, I thought forget it- I just will not do it! I can’t do it!!!! Of course I keep thinking and thinking about this project . It was really bugging me that I had this book signed up and then was going to FLAKE on it! So, I pushed though it and got it done! Mailed it out on Monday 🙂
My theme for my book was I’m a scavenger! Which if you know me is ME! The boys and I have been busy looking for any bits of paper on the ground! You should see people look at you when you cheer your boys on when they find a grocery list on the ground! LOL!
For my book, I made all the background papers out of all those papers we found. All items were found! All the photos are mine. Lots of machine stitching and staples! If you read each page it is the poem The Little Birds, that I found in a vintage poem book!
I am going to show you half my book today and half tomorrow- it’s a lot of photos!
Here is the cover:
Part 2 to continue tomorrow! Hope you are enjoying my book! SMILE
Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow!

Wow! Your pages are great! Every page is ‘cooler’ than the one before. I love it. And to think I just drew in mine. I can’t wait to go visit them when they are in tour in Chicago!!! Great job!!
Love it! Can’t wait to see more of it tomorrow!! You are such a huge inspiration to me, you don’t even know! Thanks for always sharing.
Ohhh. You rock girlfriend. These are so you. Bravo and congratulations for joining in on the tour.
Oh my heaven and stars! I’ve been missing out not visiting lately. Completely amazing and I love that the boys helped you treasure hunt, too.
Oh GF this is fabulous but I have to say I am afraid to go to part 2 to finish reading your poem……….are these your photos?
