I went back and modified all posts with photos to include a link to the first half everyone's journal. That way we can almost see the entire book together.  Smiley

kaesea, in case you're not familiar with the term, "HAGS" stands for "Have a good summer". We didn't write that when I was a kid, but my girls' yearbooks are full of that term, and it cracks me up.

THANK YOU! I had no idea what it stood for. Should have just used google -- just found it on the first try!

Those silly kids -- what will they think of next? Wink

Here is the first half of rackycoo's journal.

My book is home! Before I post pictures, I want to thank you all for participating in this swap. I absolutely love the artwork that is in my book. It will sit in a place of honor on the coffee table in my keeping room.  Kiss

First, here is the sign in page for our second round:


Here's the pages from Stifflersmom. This one, "Friday Nite Poker" means a lot to me. She knows why. I love all the vintage scorecards and tags she used!


Next up, katxena. I'm so glad I got the "5" stamp!  Cheesy This is a great page, with foreign text and lots of layers, and kissing fish!


kaesea's page, entitled "This will put us on the map!" is next, and this one made me tear up a bit. It's nicely textured and has a map of everyone's home state. Each little envelopes has a tag in it with a closeup of our home city on the front, and the craftster's name on the back. Our journals have had a way to travel!


Here are the pages from goatgoddess. I love the way she used tags and vintage images. I also love the slightly disturbing image on the right hand page. It's a little girl who appears to be holding a rat in one hand and a string in the other, but the caption says, "Djonah bwoke he tay-al!" Ewwww. It's marvelous!  Cheesy


And last, but certainly not least, amaryllisroze's page. She did this lovely layout entitled "Ocean Queen". It's got beach glass and netting and real shells and sequins and fibers...fantastic!


Words cannot express how much I love this journal. Thanks, everyone!

She looks almost sweet until you get right up on her.  Cheesy

Seriously, I love that. It's so twisted.

Hey, those fibers really do give the feeling of seaweed, at least in the photo. Cool!

What a cool journal Racky!  All the pages look lovely together.  That rat-girl is awesome!  And Kasea's spread is brilliant.  I might have to make something like that in my own journal when I get it back.  Great job y'all!
