Farm Fresh Friday over at The Greeting Farm

Happy Friday to all of you!  Today starts a new Farm Fresh Friday Challenge over on the Greeting Farm Blog.  It was our lovely Rachel's turn to choose our theme and she wants to see ... anything but a card. 

I picked up this journal at Michaels a couple of weeks ago for $1.  I had no idea what I was going to do with it but geez, $1?  I couldn't pass it up for that price, right?   So I decided I would make my daughter a Christmas planner this year so she can keep track of Christmas gifts, wish lists, parties, etc.  I used the adorable Holiday Anya 2 and colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I applied Glamour Dust to her sash and cut her out with some nestabilities.  I added some tabs to the pages but left them blank so my daughter can decide how she wants to use this little journal.  Then I tied some matching ribbons along the edge for a fun look.  I'm pretty sure she's going to love this little planner :)   Please be sure to stop by the Greeting Farm Blog to see what the rest of the DT is sharing today.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Anita
