i'm in love...

Seriously, I am so much in love with the "Tell Your Story" art journal class.
I wake up an hour early every morning just to see the newest prompt and to work on my page before work.
It's so fulfilling :)
Here are my two newest pages that I created:

I also made an elastic 'ruffle' band (from a tutorial of Rachel's) to hold my journal closed....love!

I still haven't decided how to decorate the front cover. I'm thinking of just painting "My Story" on the front with acrylic buuuuuut....not sure :)
This has been a really really sad week for me.
Fortunately, my sister and I have a little lovely weekend trip planned for mom, as her Mother's Day gift, that I leave for tomorrow. I need some relaxing and vintage shopping, badly :)
Don't forget to enter the giveaway in the post below!!
I love you.
