Memories Journal

Hi Friends! Today I have a project to share with you that's featured over on the  Crafting Ireland blog today. I made a Memories Journal for my daughter Kaley. Her 14th birthday is coming up on the 17th so I wanted to not only make her something to celebrate her day but to also give her something that she could use to record memories of her last year in middle school...sniff sniff..where has the time gone!!

If you click on the link above, you'll be able to see the full tutorial on how I created this journal. I also have a video which I'll upload later today on my CHANNEL. But in this post I'll just share the completed project : )

My daughter's school colors are blue and yellow & since it's a memory journal for her last year of 8th grade...that's the color scheme I went with for this project. I made this from an old book cover and used office envelopes and such to create journaling pages, pockets, tags and plenty of space for photos.

I can't wait to give this Kaley and more importantly I'm excited to see her fill this up with memories from her friends.

Thanks for checking out another scrappy post & another DT project for Crafting Ireland.

Happy Crafting!!
