Project Update

We are each creating our own journal with a monthly theme.  Last month was Circles and you can see the first 3 weeks here.  This month our focus is on Grids.  After spending a huge amount of time on last month's 'samples' I realized that I don't need to work quite so hard. Or spend so much valuable time working on a sample. But once I start I sometimes have a hard time stopping! Fortunately, this month I was also concentrating on another project that required a good bit of time so I decided on grid-patterned samples that could be done within a day or so.
