Pin It
Welcome to our Altered Journal Blog Hop! If you came here from Robin C. then you are on the right track! If you happen to stumble upon this hop you can begin hopping at our host

Our fabulous hop is being sponsored by the wonderful

She has graciously donated 2 Cuttlebug Folders to be given to one lucky winner.
All you have to do to enter to win is become a follower of each and every blog and leave everyone a message about their journal. Easy Peasy!! Right?
Now on to my Journal...
What a Hoot!! 

This StorytellersClub kit was perfect to use for a cutsie journal! Afterall isn't everyone's life a Hoot?

And you know I couldn't resist adding an Action Wobble to my little owl in the circle. Something about an Action Wobble that brings everything to life!! Watch my video below!!

I finished off the back with more of  this ST kit and added some fun Twine from Timeless Twine and it's ready for it's new home.

I myself have never really been into journaling. Maybe it's because I had 3 younger sisters who were constantly in my stuff. Maybe it is because my dad was super strict and no fun. LOL! I am not sure.
In a way I am kind of bummed because it would be really cool to go back and see what I would have written about the first boyfriend, the first dance I went to, the first kiss. You know all the momorable moments of being a young teenage girl. I do keep a scrapbooking journal right now. This is where I jot down my recipes for layouts and kits that I create. It's also where I keep a listing in chronological order of photos I need to crop.
If I were to write on the first page of this altered journal I think I would jot down my fun memories of being a MOM. Something I never want to forget. All the fun things we have done as well as all the fun conversations we have had! It would be cool to show my grand kids some day! Did I inspire you to start your own? I hope so because memories are worth keeping!!

  11. OMG I can relate to what you are saying, but my problem comes from age! I can't remember anything anymore. I find when the grandkids are over and they say something funny I write it down right away so when I go to scrapbook the pictures later on I can put it onto the page. This is what I love about scrapping my vaction, I can always look back and say...I remember that. Beautiful journal! TFS

  16. Beautiful journal!! I love the owl paper you chose. I think it is great to write those fun scrapbook ideas and mom memories down. When you look back on them you can see how much you have grown as a person over the years. I love to do that. It reminds me of how much God has done in my life. Great job!
