Let The Sun Shine!

This week at The Kraft Journal, we're having a SUPER FUN challenge inspired by the "SUN".  There's SO MUCH awesome inspiration on our blog, and I hope you all will stop by to play along with us.
As we all know, "challenges" inspire us to create, so when I saw this week's "Sun Challenge" theme, it inspired me in an unexpected way.  I immediately thought about the color "sunshine yellow", and I wanted to create something bright and fun.  Since I love spending time (especially in the Summer) journalling and writing, I decided to make a fun Summer Journal based on this theme, and using the "sunshine yellow" to inspire me.  I grabbed an adorable Natural Smooth Journal (this is the larger of the two sizes available, and both journals are lined - to make writing/journalling easy).  Journals make a WONDERFUL gift idea for young girls - all the way up to grandmothers.  I embellished my journal with all sorts of Kraft Outlet "krafty" goodies including some Natural Hemp Cord and Brown Kraft Coverweight Cardstock.
I also decorated the inside cover of my journal using one of the Kraft Outlet's darling little White Library Cards and Library Card Pocket.  They're just SO sweet, and they make journaling fun - the more pockets and places for journaling.....the better!   I'm sure you know someone who would just LOVE to receive a new journal, and YOU can pick one up this week at The Kraft Outlet and decorate it especially for someone special.  We'd LOVE to have you play along in this week's "Sun Challenge", and we look forward to seeing how YOU interpret the theme in your own unique way.  If your interpretation of the challenge is different (like mine), just share with us how you were inspired by the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
