I am in charge of the girls dept. at our church.  We made these prayer journals. 

The cover

We made three different torn edge designs

and we made pockets out of each torn page for notes, thoughts, etc.

Each girl was allowed to decorate with whatever papers,punches, stamps, etc. how they wanted.  They used a LOT of glitter Wink

Of course they said mine looked like a grandma journal Cheesy

Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

Cute idea! I remember loving the craft time when I used to go to GEMS. It seems like forever ago.
It's funny they said it looked like a grandma journal, haha. You can tell them it's just 'sophisticated.' Wink

I love the way you've painted the edges of the torn paper! Smiley  And your choice of decor - vintage roses - is just my style and I'm no grandma!

Those are so cute!  The ones I had my girls and I make were made of a spiral foam notebook, then they glued a cross on the front and put sticky-foam flowers/hearts on them.

...my inspiration has opened! Thanks!

Thanks guys for the kind words!     And we absolutely love the sticky foam shapes.  They have so many more shapes than they ever  did befors.  We use those on Christmas cards... again with LOTS of glitter.  The "lots" is a key word with these girls!
