Junk Journal Project
Good Morning Friends
Today I am sharing a post for one of my Facebook groups called Encouraging Women
We are doing a project for August that I think will be fun.
It is a Giveaway for a Junk Journal sort of like this . . .
This is just an example. You can see more of this JJ over at the blog post. Click Here
To enter members are required to send an envelope with papers and other items to use in the Journal.
In the photo below you can see Lace is used alot in Journals. Vintage is great but even new Lace can be dyed to look old.
Lots of pretty papers like these
Can you believe you can get these images to print yourself! That is if you have a good printer and lots of ink! Click Here to visit The Graphics Fairy. They have cool stuff!
Pretty and fun papers can be found at craft stores and even Walmart has scrapbooking paper . . .
Also used in a J. J. are Junk papers scraps of mail, old envelopes, book pages, music sheets.
Kind of almost anything works as long as you like it and fits into the theme.
And it doesn't even have to be old.
Our theme for our project is Pretty .
We want to make a Pretty Journal that will make all our members wish they are the Winner !
It is super easy for our members to enter. (Bloggers keep reading you can enter too)
1.Get an envelope and just put in a few pieces of Pretty Paper. And a couple of Postage Stamps. ( The Stamps will be used to mail the JJ to the winner.
2. Put some Pretty Lace or even Pretty Yarn or String in an envelope.
Don't forget the Stamps!
3. Even old Black and White photos, old envelopes, old church bulletins.
A Stamp or Two
You can send as many envelopes as you want!
It is super easy to enter but you have to be a member of our group.

Best Wishes and good luck everyone.
Come by and visit my blog anytime.
I try to post daily!
I have had a busy week putting food on . . .
The Cowboy read on FB a Kolache Bakery opened . . . (Did I already do post this?)This is the Upside down Pineapple I had. It was o.k.
The Cowboy had Apple Pie. He asked 'Where are the Apples?
What little I was able to scrap off the paper was the best. Strawberry Lemonade.
Fish and Chips at the marina.
I could have eaten two cups of Cole Slaw. I even got Onion Rings instead of Fries at no extra charge!
The Cowboys plate. I will get Fries next time.
We had errands in town. Stopped for Ice Cream at Cordary Drug.
The Cowboy saw Hamburger Helper at the store and insisted. I knew he wouldn't like it. It is not the same as it was waay back in the day.
I eat mine anyway they turn out!
LOL... He cleaned up his plate so he got a second Biscuit slathered in Jelly and Butter
