Heart Journal - The Girl In Me - W4

This Heart Journal project at The Greeting Farm is really fun.  I don't every journal nearly as much as I should, so every week has been a challenge.  And I'm doing far more by my own hand than I do in my scrapbook albums!

This week, the theme was The Girl In Me... and I don't consider myself a girly girl at all.  So I focused my journalling on choices I make, and although I kept embellishments to a minimum (well, one type of embellishment, but not minimal on the page!) they are flowers.... I just love flowers.

I was silly and didn't even rule lines to write on, so my journalling isn't straight.  I started to accent in capitals then promptly omitted them in the second sentence... talk about not paying attention.  But at least I'm journalling!

The flowers are created with paper ribbon (Creative Memories) for the stems, and diecut flowers (WishMade) layered on top.  Nothing extravagant, but I thought it came out well.... might have to try this as a 12x1 layout sometime!

Thanks for peepin'!
