As the big reveal drew closer, I left markers, glue sticks, fruit stickers, cancelled stamps, ink pads, paints, string, pens and pencils all over the house. A subtle way of helping out those who needed it. Everyone worked little by little and here and there, and then at a faster pace as the reveal day grew near. I couldn't wait to see them. Couldn't believe how they got into the whole process. Especially my hubby (a/k/a the sargeant)! What a peach. After a yummy b-day dinner, we came home and went through each page and shared and laughed and joked ... and had the best time. I'm not just saying that b/c I'm the mom either. For that half an hour or so, we all had something in common, our Journals. They were all silly and yet we all had pages we were anxious to share and compare.
Here are some of the photos of pages...
Pretty great, right? Loved seeing their creativity in action.
We all still have pages to do, but each journal was probably 80% completed. That was over 100 pages x 5 people=500 wrecked journal pages!
Oh P.S. This messy mess of a journal was my hubby's! Talk about a shocker, huh?
Photo was taken after the first week...it's even worse now. He even admitted that he enjoyed this whole Summer journal wreckin' bizness!
Need to think of something like this for next year's Bday!
