Dream big -- a Dream Journal for Brookie -- and a birdcage too!!!

Hi everyone!

A little awhile ago - Brookie asked me to make her a dream journal!! EEKKKK!!! You know I was ALL over that, right!?!?!?!?

Today I wanted to share the dream journal I made for her! Krista helped me with the cloud chipboard design! (I am also sharing this on the Blue Moon blog today at 8AM MST with all the supplies I used on her journal!)




This is the inside cover -- I saw this quote on Jennifer's blog!



And also today --- I am up on the LESSology with our latest challenge!! This time our challenge is -- Birds of a Feather Flock together --- we want to see something that incorporates flight -- or a BIRDCAGE!! And that's what I chose!! A birdcage!!!

 I bought this birdcage at an antique store awhile ago -- and this challenge gave me the perfect excuse to re-do it!!


This is what I started with ...


And here is what I turned it into!!!

I bought a 4x6 inch canvas and painted it -- added some alphas and Prima flowers and hung it from the inside!

I decided to keep the little birdie but added some Prima flowers to her!



And I made some of my paper flowers for the inside base of the birdcage!







And I am sooooooo EXCITED about our sponsor this month!!! Artful Delight!! I had the honor to design for Leeanne for 9 months and I LOVED every minute of it! Her kits are AMAZING!! 



We offer the latest and greatest paper crafting products packed together in one monthly kit.  The monthly kits are packed with a variety of pattern papers with coordinating cardstock and embellishments.  You may have your choice of a single monthly purchase or for a discount you can sign up for a 3 or 6 month subscription.
