Friendship Blooms: #thestencilfiedjournal
This coming week we are hosting friends and I am beyond excited to spend some time with the lady that has been my “bosom friend’ since my hubby and I started our marriage. She was the first person to ask me over for dinner, to run errands around town or to hang out at the laundromat (yeah, that’s a thing). We have shared many special and many sad moments together. Some of these while at a distance. I have tried to explain to my hubby why girls need girlfriends. Haha. As you can imagine, he doesn’t understand. Since our marriage started, my hubby has never had ‘buddies’ to hang out with. Not because he doesn’t have friends but because he likes to come home to me. He says he doesn’t need a close buddy because he has me. Awe, I just LOVE that about him!
But I still need my girlfriend. And I don’t know how to explain it to him except, girls are different. Original, right? So, this is the week that I get to soak up her presence and then she will be gone. But we are planning a girls weekend in the spring and my hubby is graciously letting me go. It sounds so wonderful to have a few days with no interruptions. We will be able to shop, talk, and encourage each other. Now all we have to do is figure out where to go.
Do you have a special spot for a girl’s weekend? Please share.
Creating the Journal Page
I am sharing my second completed prompt for the #thestencilfiedjournal challenge.
Other Stencilfied Journal Layouts:
For the background, I stenciled with the Decorative 6 Petal flower Screen as well as the Chinese Garden Plum Blossoms. I used Fresco Finish Paints and Distress paints to color in the stenciled image. I used my new white pen to doodle and an Arabic Script stamp. To complete the prompt, I tore it out of my journal, mounted it on card stock and tied it to my deck railing. Now to see how it weathers.
Thanks for Looking,
