Upcycled Believe Journal - Part II

 Hey friends!  For today's Make it Monday, I wanted to share how my "Believe" Journal from this post here is coming along.  I truly intended to finish it this weekend, but as I started working on it, I realized it is meant to be a work-in-progress and I'm okay with that!  

I added more pages created from upcycled cracker boxes and covered with different My Mind's Eye Papers.  Now that I've added 3-D embellishments, the journal is starting to look nice and chunky, just the way I like them!
Here is the inside front cover...I put the quote about perfection because that is an Achilles heel I am definitely overcoming.  The opposite page has a Bible verse that holds a lot of meaning for me and a spot to record significant events, like the day I attended my first Mommies' group.

Here, I can record dates of important events and milestones...

The journal started out as a place to keep the notes you see below, but has grown into much more.  There is a section for each month's notes and also a place for me to write down spiritual goals I have.

I included lots of places for journaling and tucking away notes or mementos.

I think my favorite spot is this one...where I actually write down how I intend to act on each week's message.
I love that I am using my passion for paper in this way; helping document an important aspect of my life!  How do you incorporate paper crafting into other areas of your life?
Thanks for stopping by!
