Your journal should record the way you face up to challenges that beset you.
Your journal, like most others, will tell of problems as old as the world and how you dealt with them. Your Journal should contain your true self rather than a picture of you when you are ”made up” for a public performance.
Your journal is your autobiography, so it should be kept carefully, You are unique, and there may be incidents in your experience that are more noble and praiseworthy in their way than those recorded in any other life.”
Second, I designed the front cover, inside front cover, outside back cover and inside back cover...
Third, I bought 11 black/white composition notebooks
Fourth, I printed the design I created in Photoshop and applied with Modge Podge each one to the notebooks.
Fifth, I made red and white rosettes to apply to the front of each journal...
And here is how they turned out...
What do you think? I hope the girls like them and that they will take time to keep a journal and remember the importance of it. More to come on Girls Camp next week!

female voice" "Hi, is Lindi there?"
Nick: "Um, ya, hold on..."
(nick looks at me with a confused voice and tells me he has no idea who it is but she wants to talk to me)
female voice: "Hi, is this Lindi?"
female voice: "I was calling to confirm your hair appointment with Arcs salon on Thursday @ 1:45..."
...long silent pause, thinking to myself I never made a hair appointment? I look at Nick and he rolls his eyes, calls the "female voice" an idiot to himself. Ding! Ding!! I just found out what my surprise was 3 days early because the receptionist called ahead of time and ruined it!!! :) :)
Me: "...um, yes I'll be there. Thank you!!"
This particular salon is located at Mandalay Bay where Nick parks cars. He knew this lady from parking her car and she offered him an AMAZING deal to do my hair just because she is NICE!! I mean a really amazing deal...3 colors and a CHOP for...ready for this...$35!!!!!! Originally it would have cost me around $200 for that, which is out of the question. I like my hair but really? Of course our tip was very very generous and I still owe her a huge thank you!!
Here are the results:
Dark, Long and getting pretty bord of it
Not a great pic to show all the different colors and layers, but you kind of get the idea. I'm slowly trying to get it back to my original color, thats why we did 3 colors and it got rid of the lovely purple tint... which is a good thing! ;)
What do you think? I'm already tempted to chop it more and go back to the a-line cut! :)
Thanks Nick for always surprising me and being the sweetest!! I should learn by now not to mention things I need/want to do because the next thing I know, he already has it figured it out! :)
