So, this challenge was... well... challenging! Oh, I knew exactly the story I wanted to share but getting it down on 'paper' in a manner that I liked was another story!
I had one complete do-over and I'm still not sure of the layout, but I decided that the story was the important thing and so, here it is!
Carol, thank you for really making me think and step outta that proverbial 'box' of mine!
I used Katie's fun freebies (brad/flair, "book definition" blendable and the book, which I recolored)... thanks, Katie!
And, Cassie... my apologies for probably misreprensenting what the actual spine of a book looks like! LOL


JOURNALING
THE STORY
I love to read and I used to read all the time... as a youth... as an adult... but somewhere along the way, a new story was written...
“HOW I USED TO READ ALL THE TIME AND GET LOST IN THE STORIES”.
A true story by Debi Boler documented May 2014.
Chapter 1: I’VE ALWAYS LOVED TO READ. BIOGRAPHIES ARE A FAVORITE.
Chapter 2: BUT LIFE GOT SO BUSY AND I PRACTICALLY STOPPED READING.
Chapter 3: BUT THEN I GOT A NOOK (WITH A CUTE JONATHAN ADLER COVER!) AND STARTED READING AGAIN!
Chapter 4: I LOVED GETTING LOST IN THE STORIES AGAIN!
Chapter 5: THEN I DISCOVERED GAME APPS AND GOT LOST IN PLAYING GIN RUMMY AND CRIBBAGE AND SOLITAIRE
Chapter 6: AND THEN ONE DAY, I DOWNLOADED A NEW BOOK AND...
THE NEXT CHAPTER...
