Frame It at Recycle, RePurpose & ReInvent

Time for a new challenge at Recycle, RePurpose & Reinvent:  Frame It!  Of course, that's the bonus round, as always Anything Goes!  Meet Charisma:

I created a little journal with this wonderful image by Chris at CS Designs.   What is recycled you might ask?

All the pages (I also used one on the cover) are from one of my daughter's diaries from when she was four.  She drew pictures and wrote and dictated whole stories for Mommy to write.  I had actually forgotten about the diaries and it was like discovering hidden treasure!  There was quite a bit of paper left in this one, so everytime I open my little journal that paper reminds me of Lauren's sweet stories.

I bound the pages with purple twine and simply tied it in the the center.  At the end of my little  journal, I created a pocket.

I added a tag with a pretty flower that copies the colors in Charisma.

Come join us at Recycle, RePurpose and ReInvent.  The design team all chose different images to showcase.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Terrific idea to use the old diaries--I have loads that I need to do something with:)

  2. Lori, what a great idea! I love this journal. Charisma looks fabulous and the flower tag is such a cool touch. How wonderful to have a little reminder of such a special time with your daughter. It makes this journal extra special.

  3. I remember that paper! It's a good thing I always abandoned my journals about halfway through--leaves paper for other projects!

  4. Fantastic, wow, love everything about this Lori!! Awesome, as usual!

  5. Great journal, love the way you taped some of the pages in and that tag at the back is so pretty. The Charisma image was perfect for this project.

  6. This is so lovely & creative! I really like the window too. Best, CG
