Continuing scrappy journal pages

Before I begin, this was supposed to post on Thursday, and I think it did since it was a scheduled post, then Blogger acted all weird and I lost the post. I never realized it was gone until Saturday, either. And all of your comments you left before the big Blogger blowup on the post I left on Wednesday, were deleted before I could visit or comment. For that I apologize.

Also, before I begin, here are a couple of giveaways you might enjoy.

Amy is giving away a $30.00 gift certificate to Skybluepink. This is one super giveaway, since I would love to win this one. Like any blog giveaway I send you to or recommend, Amy expects nothing in return for entering her giveaway, which runs through Friday, May 20.

Celebrating her 500th post, Christine Clemmensen is having a super giveaway of her book "Scraps." Three people will be chosen to win one of these, and Christine is including a handmade gift, handmade postcards, and ephemera for collages. I won't be entering this one, because I won Scraps when the publisher had a contest a few months ago. Christine's giveaway runs through June 17.

Now back to the post Blogger ate and is STILL eating. While attempting to post, I lost this post again because I had to sign into my account. I've never had that happen before. Since I am really tired of writing out what is on the pages, I am now going to let you just look and enjoy (unless there is something I don't normally use).

The center pages (pages 20 and 21) are here for reference. If you missed the first group, they are here. These were made for Annette's journal.

Pages 22 and 23. Page 23 has a picture of cherries and a metallic cherry chocolate wrap.

Pages 24 and 25. Page 25 is a translucent logarithm chart.

Pages 26 and 27.

Pages 28 and 29. Page 29 is shorter than the rest of the pages.

Pages 30 and 31. Page 30 is plain because I liked the design and didn't want to cover it. Page 31 has wallpaper sewn over a to-do list.

Pages 32 and 33. I picked the image on page 33 especially for Annette.

Pages 34 and 35.

Pages 36 and 37. For page 36 I used a DaVinci image. Page 37 has a secret writing area,

with a hidden sticker. There is plenty of room to write on this page.

Pages 38 and 39. In the pocket of page 38 is a decorated tag. I picked the cat in the basket image used on page 39 especially for Annette, too.

Page 40 is the final page in the first set of pages known as a signature. The DaVinci image is sewn over a paint chip, all sewn onto a sheet of black paper.

I can only hope Blogger takes this post. As you can tell, I got tired of trying to post it.

Blogger has indeed been crazy but I'm glad you kept at it because there is so much to look at on these pages. I particularly like the image sewn on a paint chip, very clever.

Inspiring pages! She is gonna love 'em! I thought my parents were the only ones in the world who still had that green & white computer paper with the holes down the side...great use on these pages. I am still drawing on that 'scrap' paper, or using it to write recipes on. it made me smile to see it here!
