Week 24 Blog

I loved this cute little journal and just knew I had to create one! My son, Vito and daughter, Adriana and I  love to play Scrabble ( and it’s variations…) so I thought this would be a cute way to keep track of our score! The challenge was to find a Scrabble board ( since the paper Donna used wasn’t available where I looked.) So I checked out thrift stores, flea markets and yard sales…with no luck. At my friend’s wedding reception, a few of the “Yard-sale- appreciating guests” and I noticed a Yard Sale next door, so we went to check it out! My sister noticed a woman holding a Scrabble Game and remarked to me, “How did you miss that?”, knowing I had been in the hunt for one! The woman overheard and offered me the board, saying she just wanted the game for the wooden tiles! I offered her money for it and she wouldn’t take it! ( Scrapbookers are the sweetest people!)

I had another project I wanted to use the board for, so I color copied it, then glued the tiles to the paper! Now I have a cute notebook to put our scores in- much nicer than little scraps of paper…
