Well, here it is....my Alphabetica round robin journal cover!! I have been thinking about it for at least a month and it finally all came together with old and new objects! There are 26 people in this project. The project is based on the book Alphabetica by Lynne Perrella. The participants are as far away as England and Italy and as close as Downers Grove, IL. There are gals in Florida, Wisconsin, Arizona, California, and Utah. My theme is Names. I really love old fashioned womens' names. Whenever I make a card using old pictures I come up with a little story in my head about the person's picture. I love vintage pictures and old-fashioned names, so this seemed a natural topic. On the cover are two old postcards I had in my collection. I have been collecting postcards for a long time, and now these two hobbies have come together. The background paper is some vintage wallpaper I just recently purchased from Pam Garrison. I have to get a link to her blog because her stuff is just awesome. Anyway, I am up way too late (I know it is only 10:15 p.m. but for me that is late!). I will post some of the other pages tomorrow.
