Blush Journal

Most of you have probably heard of Mamakimberly. She is my sister, Kimberly, and that is her SCS name. She is my blogmaster/photographer/computer techie guru/etc. She is also probably my best friend. And she’s leaving me!

She is actually moving overseas. Instead of living 5 minutes away, she will be oceans away. I know it is for good reasons and I know it is what she has always wanted. But I don’t want her to go! I am living in a complete state of denial. We don’t discuss the move at all, lol! Good way to deal with it, huh?

Anyway, she told me she wanted a journal for her purse. We had gone shopping together after Christmas and she had purchased one at Barnes and Noble. She tried altering it and it didn’t take. (Wrong kind of surface for mod podge, I guess!) Anyway, I decided to make one for her using the Blush Basic Grey to match her little notebook. Well, apparently there was a run on the Blush paper at Recollections…they only had a few designs left. And of course, not the one I wanted!

So I went with another sheet I had and made this for her. I used Basic Grey Wholy Cow and Making Memories rub-ons as well. I try to mod podge over the rub ons, just to make sure they won’t peel off later. I ran some black grosgrain ribbon along the seam to make it pretty and that’s it! Oh yeah, I got the journal at Target – I wanna say it was about $3.99 or something. It has pocketed dividers inside as well.

    It’s beautiful Emily! I know you are going to miss her. I will pray that God makes this a special time for yall until she leaves.

    I love the altered notebook and she is going to love it too! I know exactly how you are feeling – my sister moved several states away a couple of years ago and we had never been apart. She finally came back last year. Everything happens for a reason I tell myself. Spend as much time together as you can! 🙂

    Beautiful journal! I know your sister will love it and think of you every time she takes it out to jot her notes and thoughts.

    This really is sweet looking. I love the colors and design. I am sure you sister will treasure it. For the record, I believe denial is highly under-rated!
