I am once again a little backlogged with journals and projects! It's not too bad this time, thank God! I have Heather's Dream Journal, Lil's I Dream in Colors Journal and two Marie Antoinette Journals in line for the weekend. My goal is to at least do one of the Marie's (they are the most time consuming!) and the two smaller ones (the dream journal and the color journal). You know what they say about the best of intentions............?

This was exactly my goal last weekend when I had six journals! Had all the kids (my 4 plus the 4 significant others!) and my grand daughters here all last weekend so it was a full house but it was wonderful to have all my chickens in the nest even if just for a couple of days.

I did get two journals done and out the door this week so that wasn't too bad.

This is the layout I did for Lee's Frida Kahlo Journal - subject of the journal? You guessed it! FRIDA KAHLO. This woman had a very interesting though short and unhappy life. Her physical pain - excruciating and relentless - was only compounded by her love for a man who didn't know how to love in return. Her self portraits reflected the pain, both physical and emotional, that she endured throughout her short life.

" There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst. "
Frida Kahlo
