    Please remember to gather 'junk ' up each day to place in the junk journal. These prompts were made up to give you a theme to create from and not necessarily for writing but for creating. Using a piece of the theme from your day to create something with it. For example; favorite fall object I would use a piece of a leaf to create a tuck, or an acorn as a charm, etc.
    1. favorite fall object (1st page layout, front pocket, embellishment)
    2. favorite fall character (2nd page layout, tuck)
    3. favorite piece of fall art haul (3rd page layout, napkin tag)
    4. favorite thing about fall weather (4th page layout, flap tuck)
    5. favorite fall food (5th page layout, journaling card (ATC style)
    6. favorite picture of yourself or someone (6th page layout, photo frame embellishment)
    7. anything the color of orange (7th page layout, belly band)
    8. leaves (8th pages layout, leaf tuck)
    9. favorite sweater description/drawing/photo (9th page layout, pull out)
    10. favorite thing that sparkles (10th page layout, sparling multi pocket)
    11. favorite sweet treats (11th page layout, candy wrapper tag)
    12. anything pumpkin (12th page layout, recipe, envelope pocket, tuck)
    13. favorite mystery book charachter (13th page layout, mystery hidden slide pocket)
    14. fall decorations (14th page layout, horizontal belly band)
    15. warm, cozy, fuzzy (15th page layout, botton pocket, tuck)
    16. something totally exciting or scary (16th page layout, pocket page)
    17. fall outfit (17th page layout, paper doll embellishment)
    18. monthly favorites (18th page layout, card journal tuck)
    19. happy mail (19th page layout, use a part of happy mail to create a tag)
    20. crafty favorites (20th page layout, ticket, frame tuck)

    I've watched a few! Good job on them, I just haven't figured out the whole video and uploading thing. I've decided to go with a current JJ that I've started, which doesn't have 31 pages but I will still use the wonderful prompts for adding stuff to the inside. Who knows, maybe in the next 10 days I'll make a fresh JJ to fill up.

    Well it's October 1! I'm working on my own little JJ with the prompts. Penny I did print some of your free printables but haven't used they yet.

    First pic is of my cover. It's a small journal made from manila folder so measures about 4 x 6". For Day 1, I chose my favorite "object" as layers - jackets, sweaters, etc. and since I didn't know how to incorporate that, I found a super cute tutorial for making the zipper pocket! I used a coffee-died letter from my mom.

    It can hold a tag inside, and also can be used as a tuck spot.
