Tears Welled Up...

My friends are taking their daughter to Europe for her senior trip/family vacation.

They have been planning and saving for this trip for several years.

I have known this sweet girls since the day she was born, literally the day!!!

I love her so much and the precious heart she has for our Lord Jesus.

I wanted her to be able to record her days as she traveled. Because it is always good each evening to think on the day's events. Then when you get home you can go back and re-read them and them.

I love the Pressed Petals Journal because it has all kinds of fun stuff inside. It is stunning! Not just blank boring pages. And I added a few additional touches...3x3 envelopes to tuck a ticket in, pockets to put a note or a instant photo into.

Her mom told me that when received it, tears welled up in her eyes.

To create this special journal for a special young woman I started with the Pressed Petals Journal and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. From there I gathered a few different dies and ink. I really love the look of the journal itself. I used Rococo Rose and Soft Suede Classic ink to achieve the leather look on the front and back covers. And of course for some shimmer, Wink of Stella.

These little journals are addictive and my newest favorite gift to make and give.

I hope you will purchase one and give it a try yourself.
