This is a mini book I made with the "Yearning" kit at Scrapbooking From the Inside Out (you can read more about that here http://scrapbookingfromtheinsideout.blogspot.com/2009/09/what-do-you-yearn-for.html. The book is from 7Gypsies and comes plain with the envelopes. There were so many rich papers in this kit, I knew I would be inspired to do something spectacular!
The theme was "yearning" and I had to figure out what that meant to me. So I came up with this...
Since it is a book of envelopes I hope to be able to fill this one day and leave it for the next generation. (BTW that paper is photo paper! I used glimmer mist and then ran it through the printer for the journal. And you can click on the pictures to make them bigger and easier to read.)
The inspiration is from a song called "God is speaking" by Mandisa. Music is so much a part of me that I had to add this paper by creative Imaginations to my book (not in the kit) and it just happens to be perfect for what I am saying...You can hear it here http://www.tangle.com/view_video?viewkey=72362341ebd3132fff75 (don't forget to mute my player below ;) )
