Lasting Memories #64 - Hidden journaling

Gooood Sunday Morning!!
Anyone ready for another fun challenge from Lasting Memories?? I hope so!
This week we challenge you to use some hidden journaling on your project. There are some pretty creative ideas from the Design Team on our blog....just might want to check it Memories. :)

Last week I had purged my stash and got rid of a bunch of older stuff. I hate doing that because I always feel that I bought it for a reason and I should use it....
But waaay back then, it was always about buying the latest and greatest...whether you used it or not. If it was pretty or cool, you had to have it!
Well, those days are gone. I ran out of room and had to let go of some oldies but goodies.'

For my hidden journaling, I simply put a cute sentiment on a chipboard tag. This tag slips in behind the photo. I attached some fun lace and fibers and a few flowers to dress it up.

These papers are from about 6 years ago from Heidi Grace. Maybe even longer...who knows anymore. I always loved these colors!
I saw the color challenge from Scrap Whispers and knew right where to go. Sometimes, cleaning out the stash is a good least I got

And this gorgeous sketch is from Stuck On U Sketches. Nanne is so good at coming up with beautiful sketches!
I handcut a scalloped circle and inked it to death. All of the flowers are from the stash (which just couldn't be purged!) And the chipboard swirls are from the same Heidi Grace set.
I gotta love that I held on to this older collection AND used it! Finally!

Stop by Lasting Memories to see more inspiration!

Have a great day!!!


  1. BEAUTIFUL Layout!!
    Have a GREAT Day,

  2. This is gorgeous. Beautiful photo's too Wendy. I know what you mean about it being hard to let go of things. We have a wknd retreat coming up next wknd and we do a 'garage sale' for the wknd and it's a ton of fun. We sell what we don't use and buy what someone else isn't using. It's a win/win!! Have a great day!!

  3. Gorgeous. I love the colors and all the flowers. Great job.
