The word strips mixed into the journaling really caught my eye. The word art looks fantastic with the arrow pointing to the elements and the circle matting is fabulous.

Your journal is perfect ... and, I can totally relate. It would be so interesting to see what our parents would have documented for us had they had the resources we do today. Terrific job using this months word art!
