Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week's still not completely done, but it's getting there!

I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.

And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!  
Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.

So, if you need to start at the beginning:

Oh, guess what else is going on...



Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.

Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....

Toilet Paper Rolls!
(yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)

Old Book Pages
(including those from a hymnal...)

Scrap Cardstock from other projects

Of course, I also used lots of my other wonderful stuff:
Unity Rubber Stamps
3GirlJAM Crinkle Ribbon
Stampin UP! DSP and Stamps
Other vendor Stamps
Acrylic Paint
Acrylic Glaze
PVA Glue

And the list goes on and on.  So, I won't bore you with that.  I'm sure if you're visiting me, you have lots of wonderful crafting and artsy stuff!

Now, onto the wonderful and delicious creations of

(Tell her I said hi and that I think she's the bomb!)

Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop {Celebrate Friendship}

I'm here joining in Julie's Blogoversary!  I'm sure you are here hopping along and celebrating with her!
If you are, then, YES, you're here.
If you want to start at the beginning, start at Julie's blog!
There isn't much more fun than spending a Friday, chatting and visiting with friends, right!   And we're celebrating all weekend long to give you plenty of time to visit all of us and share your stories of friendship and craft!
Stamping and scrapbooking has a way of bringing friends together, doesn't it?  It does for me.  In fact, my best friends (and some of my oldest friends) were brought together because of this art form.  
Blog Candy
I'm one of the folks offering blog candy in celebration of the hop!  So, leave me a comment telling me one of your stories of friendship and crafting and you'll be eligible for some crafty goodness!
