Its a Wrap


Jan 17, originally uploaded by Trish Nonaka.
The GPP Street Team: Crusade No 47 was to create something using leftover wrapping, trim, cards, etc from the holidays. Since I got started a bit late on this one, I didn't have anything left from the holidays. All my cards, pictures, and letters are ready to go in to my yearly handmade Christmas book but aren't attached yet. So I grabbed a couple of my favorites and just made copies of them to add to my journal.
Visit to read Michelle's explanation of "Evidence " journaling. I think MANY of my pages are evidence pages because I love to incorporate "leftovers" from daily life as tiny reminders of things that I've done or read, experienced, etc.

The trees are from a card my Aunty C. made. Every year she hand crafts the loveliest cards for all of us. Each one is such a treasure to me.

  5. What a romantic spread this is, at least I think so. Very nice, thanks for sharing. It's a lot about "evidence" all journaling, I agree.

  8. Visiting all the crusaders and fabulous pages... Love the mix and two colors contrasting where it's greenish on the left and redish on the right.
