Manila Folder Journal
As you can see, I barely have room to create anything on this messy desk! However, I am determined to end the year...organized...at least in my head, about how this Christmas went...menus, what we did, how the dessert turned out, what I gave as gifts and ideas I already have for ...next Christmas. Stuff like that. The first thing I did...because I didn't want to lose it, is to put a very special Christmas card I received into this journal.
This journal is about the gifts in my life. Earlier this spring, I attended the wedding of the daughter of a very special friend whom I've known for..almost 27 years. ( I blogged some photos from the wedding). I received the most wonderful card from this new bride and groom.
The card is a photo from the evening of their wedding...the tent all lit up and the lights remind me of stars strung across the sky. All is calm. All is bright.
This is a paper napkin I collaged underneath the card....all it says is LOVE.
And this is how the pages look together. I had done the right hand page months ago and decided the card was the perfect addition to place opposite it.
Not to be corny.....but Erica & Andrew are two LOVEly people whom I wish the best in life.....
I didn't want to lose the sentiment or the photo of them on the back of this card so that's why I attached it with ribbon so I could flip it over. This card was a true gift.
