    Ali I love seeing your PL pages! I was wondering on the newspaper that you included do you treat the paper with anything to make it last?

    After seeing your card about “Fun while it lasted” and your mention of grief on a journal card, I thought I’d send you some virtual blessings and happy thoughts. Whatever moment you’re in, I pray you’ll continue finding comfort and joy in the love of those around you!

      When I forget to grab a paper or they run out (like the day after the election!) I download it from the Newseum’s website and print it to a 8.5X11 and slide it into my PL. They have hundreds of front pages from U.S. and foreign newspapers.

    I love that you added the newspaper. I saved one as well for my scrapbook. I think sometimes when we tell our stories, the context of what’s going on in the world around us isn’t there. I like adding news articles or front pages from huge events like this to give a bit of historical reference.
