Blogger's Challenge - Reuse & Recycle

This week's Blogger's Challenge was to recycle an item. I used a journal that I had picked up at the Doallr Store.

I covered the journal with retired Designer paper (I don't remember the name of the pattern...) and added a ribbon with a filagree brad to the end to make a bookmark.

This is a Recovery Journal for someone that was in a bad accident and needs to record her PT and progress. I have heard that she is doing much better!!

Check out what my other blogging friends have done.

Have a great weekend!

The journal turned out beautiful. I'm sure it will inspire your recovering friend.

This is really nice. Your friend will much prefer keeping track of her pt in a cute and decorated journal than just using any old spiral notebook or pad! I just realized in reading your blog that my mom keeps a daily journal of her diet. I think I'll try to make something similar for her. I love the bird and the DSP. It really came out nice!
