Preseason football is on, back to school shopping is here and there is a cool breeze in the evenings, summer is coming to an end.  I plan on squeezing every last ray of sunshine from it as it has been a great summer.  My oldest enters high school and his elmentary school days are over. 

I am reaching the end of a great book…."One Day" and am racing to get that done before next weekend as I am going to see the movie.  Don't you hate it when you are turning the final pages of a great book?  I will miss that one for sure. Anyone else have some good reads to recommend? 

It makes you wonder if all good things do come to an end…….

A couple of months ago in May I issued a challenge, my Inspiration Challenge.  It was a place to put my favorite quotes and inspiring messages in along with a safe place to create and try new techniques.  Little did I know how much that project would mean to me and how much I would love it! 

Today I present the last page in my Inspiration Journal……….


  • Adhesives - Helmar 450 Quick Dry & Premium Craft Glue
  • Mists & Glam - Tattered Angels
  • Flowers – Michael's
  • Buttons – Buttons Galore & More
  • Simmerz

and here I bring to you every page in my complete journal:


So does this end for me?  NO WAY!  I decided that this is such an easy project that I can add a page in every couple of days or so.  This album has been a place to learn, grow and love.  That does not have to end nor will I let it. So I guess I better get to designing another album.  If you care to join me I will issue this challenge again because seeing the pages that have come with this inspiration journal has been so inspiring for me!  Feel free to leave a comment or email me if you are joining in or following along.  So all good things don't have to come to an end but just change with time. It is up to us to grow with it.
