Summer’s in full swing now…can you believe it?!

A couple more of my art journal pages to share with you…seems that’s all I’ve been feeling like working on lately!

It’s such a wonderful combination of all the paper crafting things I’ve ever done—a little bit cardmaking, a little bit scrapbooking, journaling my days, collecting favorite quotes & doodling {which I’ve never grown out of}…just perfect for me!

Maybe that’s why this quote struck such a chord in me…if we keep doing the same things all the time, how will we ever  grow?  Learning new skills, trying new things--that’s how we become what we want to be…

The two pages together.  It’s so much fun to start with a basic idea on the page and just see what flows out of you!

So, to help you along with YOUR new journaling adventures {or cardmaking or scrapbooking, or WHATEVER is making YOU happy right now!}, how about a little giveaway?

Here’s one of my favorite tools for graphics—Crafty Secrets’ new CDs.  This is their newest—and possibly my favorite—CD:  “Creating with Vintage Typography”—hundreds of beautiful images just waiting for you to print out and play with!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  That’s it!  Let me know if you’re a follower & I’ll enter you twice.  Nothing tricky!

I’ll draw a name Friday night {the 15th} about midnight—GOOD LUCK to all of you!!!
