Okay, you've totally inspired me. I'm going to go around the house and set up 7 foot long tables in every room!

P.S. Tell Ray I totally agree with him and I don't like Guinness either!

GReat idea to do a huge batch at once!
Love the colors of the pages. They're pretty all by themselves. Can't wait to see what else you do with them.

Love the backgrounds. I have to admit I looked at the art first and thought they might be your Artfest trades. I'm sure you will do inspiring things with them in your journal.
