Recreation - My Word Of The Year

I chose a Word of the Year this year, RECREATE. For those of you new to choosing a Word of the Year, it's picking a focus word that describes your intention for the upcoming year. If you're interested in picking YOUR word, a really good list can be found HERE at Ali Edwards Design: One Little Word: 2010 Word List.

This journal started with a black and white composition book for around $1. I used 4 sheets of scrapbook paper, 2 in each color, along with some white cardstock for the lace treatment. The flower is covered chipboard from Stampin' Up and chipboard letters were inked up with Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie ink. Since the R and E had already been used up, I used the outsides which at first made me feel so uncomfortable but ended up so cute!

I embellished it with fibers, Tim Holtz keys and a fragment which I still need to decorate and a little butterfly pendant that opens to reveal a mirror. I also used an Inkadinkado clear stamp, Garden Words, for the stamping.

Inside the journal are pockets to put little inspirational tags into or momentos of times I spent relaxing this year. It was a really fun project to complete and I use it weekly to recap successes in my week. Try one today. Basic instructions for a journal can be found HERE.
