Wreck This Journal :)

I FINALLY got this journal about a month ago :) I loved it instantly and I actually got it to show to my fifth graders. They loved it as well and many went and got it! I started wrecking it but never finished and I thought that since I was pretty much stuck in bed again today, I would work on destroying it some more :) I found the Wreck This Journal Flickr group and found some really great inspiration from it. These pictures definitely put me in the mood to do some serious wrecking to my journal :)

How fun right?? Adam said that doing a journal like this would be torture for him. Isn't weird how some people just don't get it :) Does anyone else have this journal? If so, did you finish it? What was your favorite part? Link me some pictures for inspiration!!

Happy Tuesday!

    This is a fabulous book. I've never heard of it before, but I think I just might pick up a copy and get started! thanks!!

  2. i've picked this up a thousand times, but never committed to it.

    the pictures you posted made me want to give it a try.

    hope your ankle is feeling better!!

  3. I haven't done one of those yet. It looks like alot of fun, though!

  4. i totally have it, but i haven't really done much with it. just like her world explorer book i bought. i love them both, but they just sit on the shelf. this post may have inspired me to crack them both open again and get back to it. :] thanks janel!

  5. i have this too!! but i think my organized, none creative brain stops me from doing anything with it...it is almost too chaotic for my brain :) i need to learn to let go and just do it!!

  6. OK, so after reading this, I went to Borders and got one. I love it!-and will start writing in it tonight.
    Thanks for the post!

  7. I'm afraid I have to agree with Adam on this one.

    Hope your ankle is feeling better!

  8. I have this! I have to say, though, I've kind of neglected it (until I have fruit stickers! lol) I'm definitely inspired to get back into it again!

  9. I bought it to show it to my kids too! I actually made a kid friendly version called Art This Alphabet to use witha smaller group of kids in summer school last year. If your interested I'd be happy to share with you! Just let me know. I haven't actually worked in Wreck this journal but now I want to!
