I began making journals when I was a small girl after my Grandmother passed away...a few months after my close friend Roxanne and her mother were burned alive in a house fire...Halloween story??? sadly no.She was a beautiful little girl always pulling her knee socks up as we ran across the school yard. Friday we said good bye as school let out I did not know it was forever.
I played the piano and made journals for years and now I am 54 my piano is in storage temporarily..ahhh but I still journal

Teresa Sherman a very talented artist I also represent her often in Sweet Pea Stamps. Her talent knows no bounds.
I purchased this digi 2 or 3 years ago and in cleaning out my files this past month I found it and said ahhh sweet. Steam punk Sally was the title of my file.
The paper was from one of my son's past girl friends Gothic nice ravens and grunge and stating Be true to yourself.
