Katy's Graduation Junk Journal, Part 2 Flip Through

Perhaps you're here because you saw last week's post
and want to see more of the journal.
If not, maybe you'd like to go back and see last week's post?
Here are more pictures of Katy's Junk Journal
 Just more room for journaling.

 Another tractor drawing by Katy's mother.
 Katy played a lot of high school softball as catcher.
We loved running around to watch her in games.

 I remember one thing I looked forward to after graduating college 
was to finally read the books I wanted to read because I finally had time.

 An actual "How-to" and recipe for making pizza.

Room to jot down recipes and food ideas 
along with some recipe cards to use.
 One of Katy's interests in part thanks to her Amma,
is beekeeping.  
They have acquired some hives.
So here just happened to be some honey ideas
a place to put business ideas and maybe records.
And, of course, more information.
Come back next week to she what else was included in this book.

Katy's Graduation Junk Journal, Part 1 Flip Through

 Last year my oldest grand daughter graduated from college,
so I tried my hand at making a junk journal with some memories,
and places to jot down thoughts & ideas for the future.
Besides our memories, one signature centered around her elementary education major.
That was an easy one for me.
This year my youngest grand daughter graduated as a Civil Engineer.
A bit more challenging for me.

Like Morgan's, this one has a embroidered initial pocket on the front to store writing tools, glue,etc. 
 I don't go through magazines ahead of time.
When time comes, I flip through to see what applies.
This time it worked out perfect and quickly.
All came together like a dream.
 The pages were simple coffee dyed from computer printed templates found online.
 Most of the clippings came from Real Simple magazines,
and an advertisement magazine published in Lexington
that has luscious colored pictures.
 Throughout the book there are several tucks
hiding some cash.

 I used some familiar music from a Baptist songbook found at Goodwill.
Pages were already well aged.
 In this signature about family,
I added a few old shots of grand parents.

 We all had a great time growing up in the Nana Van.
Lots of fun travels.
I can remember the exact times Katy said, "Nana this is the best trip ever!"

A copy of a drawing made by Katy's mother.
 So involved with purple Barney at this age.
Her brain soaked in everything at this age.
 I wished you could have seen the farm boots she had on.
She was already sold on "country" at this age.
 Some of my homemade cards to use, tied up in this piece of fabric
that matched the book.

Just too much to show in one post.
It will probably take 2 more posts to finish the flip through.
Please come back next Tues (I hope.)
