wreck this journal - the final chapter

this is the final week of wreck this journal. i gotta say, i've had run through the gamut of emotions. i think the biggest thing i'll take away from it is that i have learned to let go. i had been holding onto some ideas of who i was and realized that i wasn't letting my full self shine through. ok, ok, enough with the life lesson - onto the wrecking finale!!

first i had to find just the right page to wreck
after finding the right page, i played in the mud
rub with dirt - yes!!
seeing how much fun that was i decided to play around a bit
trust me this is great

that was awesome! now i was craving more...

i had to check the wreckage

yep looks good to me
wreck this journal - DONE!!

Oh. You really did it! I actually felt a little sorry for that journal!

But on the wrecking crew, bad is good! So, tho the journal got it bad, you did a very very very good job :)
