Wreck this journal - week 7

I received Bev's splatter page!! I really enjoyed being part of the swap and will be adding this page to my journal:

I brought my journal outside a few days ago and the neighborhood kids loved looking through the whole thing! I told them they could do some of the wrecking too and they loved every minute of it.

I didn't take photos of the kids, but here are a few of the pages they worked on.

They also took turns throwing it against the brick wall. It was a ton of fun for everyone!
(I do wonder what stories they told their parents when they got home...!!)

One girl even wrapped it in toilet paper, and I had to wait 2 days to unwrap it!

Adrienne and I had fun smearing some of our breakfast on this page! Peanut butter, nutella, banana, and a bit of berry juice!

I started working on the stain log, added a little bit of my daughter's chewy candy, which ended up sticking really good to the other page and ripping a bit of it.
