After completing my You Go Girl journal, I turned to the second class I enrolled in at Classes Kara Made : the Tell A Story class. This is a class that inspires you to create five different journals, each using a different technique to talk about something. For one of her journals, Kara uses an old record album holder and that inspired me to use a vintage photo album that was lying around.

Here is the story I chose to tell : Stupid things my parents told me.

The stickers were already there. I just added the image and the writing. I don’t know any of the people in these pictures, they are vintage photos from various paper packs.

The tip of the iceberg concerning my body issues.

My mom, her relationship to food and my own relationship to food will be part of another journal.

Nice try dad.


This is so blantantly false and stupid! As if I would spend once second even thinking about my ‘figure’ two seconds after I’ve given birth. Yeesh.

Actually, it was in Archaeology.

The back flap was missing, so I simply added a piece of cardboard on which my daughter had drawn images about love.

I backed it with a piece of vintage wallpaper.

 There’s one story down. More to come 🙂
