This will be a 3 page spread but I'm a bit stumped about the 3rd page so I am putting it down for a day or two and then I'll dive back in. I know I'll go back in and work on the bee sting page but it's a nice start. Now if the middle page would pop into my head I would be all set. This is Kathy's journal and the theme is tribes. I didn't want to do anything literal so I brought up the themes of friendship and the hive.
I wanted to make something fun with a summer theme and fresh fruit popped in my head since I eat a ton of it. You almost have to force feed me vegetables but fruit I will gladly eat all day long.
I started putting things together a couple of months ago letting the perfect things fall into my lap so no pressure. I mixed the fruit with a picnic theme (small journal, marshmallows, chocolate, tea, animal crackers, candy, napkin, tea strainer, book, fold up bag and lip balm). I figured that they were all perfect for one of my friends and her birthday is next week so I packed it up and shipped it off to the east coast.
Happy Summer. When is the sun going down? I want to go to bed (smile).
