Paper Adventure '08

Yesterday I finished my AJC cards, and it was time for a new challenge! Through emailing with Amy I found one!! Elise Blaha started Paper Adventure '08 and I think it's great!
I started this morning with the cover of the book I'll be making the challenges in, and here's the result.

It's 5x7 which is a perfect size to work with, covered with Rob & Bob Studio papers by Provo Craft which I had laying around for a long time.

This is the inside, binder ring hold it together.

And my first page is done too! Love it, Balance......

So today, think about Balance.
How are you balanced? How are you struggling with balance? What does this word mean to you? What do you want it to mean to you in 2008?

A little detail of the page, don't know if you're able to read the journaling, but if you click on the picture it enlarges! It's not my own handwriting but 2Peas Scrapbook font, my own handwriting isn't that nice, so why not use this!

I can't wait to see the next challenges which will be on next week Tuesday!!

Lieve Marjo,

Wat een leuk idee!
Bedenk je zelf iedere week een woord of krijg je die van iemand?
En dit die je dan 52 weken?
Echt een uitdaging! Geweldig voor later ook: net zo'n dagboek-idee!
Mooi papier trouwens!
Heel anders dan BG,he?

Liefs, Jen.
