"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

2011 Family Journal

 For the 3rd year in a row I have kept a Family Journal. 
Here is my 2011 Family Journal!


 Here is a look inside:



 Each month has a calendar to write down the little important events that happen, then on the opposite side is a page to write a monthly summary.  Then I have left 2 pages after each month to add pictures.

I love how simple this journal is to keep up with all year long.  I am so far behind on all my other scrap booking but I have kept up with this with no stress!

 I have put mine together using these wonderful helps!
The calendars and journal pages are free to print out HERE.
I use this art journal and I use spray adhesive to adhere the pages and scrapbook paper to the journal.
I tie fun ribbon to the binding of the journal for a fun touch.

If you have any other questions check out

on my other Yearly Journals.

Your journals always turn out SO cute!! Maybe this year will be the year that I finally get one put together for myself {here's to hoping}!

BTW...the paper you used for embellishments is darling! Where did you get it?

Misty-
I got my paper at Roberts Crafts in SLC. It was a mix of several different lines. But the stickers on each monthly page are from DoodleBug. It was one big sheet of fun family stickers.
Hope that helps!

Could you repost the link for where you get the journal from? I've tried clicking but it doesn't take me to anything but the home page :(
