    Great round-up of items, Nancy. I am off to check out Lisa’s post right now. I think journaling cards for Project Life is one of those things you need in every color and design and can never have too much of!

      Hi Alison – I most certainly will be, thanks for asking! The page is almost done and will be ready to launch today or tomorrow. I had planned to have it up on Friday but my work schedule the past few days got scrambled by the passing away of my terminally ill stepfather.
