Written Journal Backgrounds, and a Joke For You

Ok, the joke first, from an email I received of several kooky cute things little kids have said:
Question: How can you delay milk turning sour?
Answer: Keep it in the cow.
Passenger Ticket. Paint, paper scraps, Anthropologie catalog puzzle image, woman tag is a perfume spray sampler, business card, text from an American Express ad. Star Catcher. Anthropologie little girl image, paper, watercolor background. Penguin cupcakes I SOOOOO want to make, they KILL me! Sunrise over Traditions. Paisley print and black on white strip from Patty. White on black flower ribbon. Rubber stamps, paint sample chip, vintage postcard. Reflect. Vintage postcard tucked into a pocket, magazine images, rubber stamps, wallpaper from Patty. Slightly Bizarre. [Ya think?!] Magazine images, rubber stamps, acrylic paint. Naughty Johnny. Magazine image (wouldn't you LOVE to have Johnny Depp sizing you up just like that?!), graphic from work, Basic Grey paper, rubber stamp images/text, stamp pad blobs. Muse Frolic. Acrylic paint, basic grey paper scrap with die cut sparrow shape, rubber stamp images on tag, library pocket, scrap. Nostalgia. Watercolor background, clip art borders and bird, journaling sticker, my photo of the china girl, my homemade 'tintype' -- family photo, from left to right: my foster brother Larry, me, my foster brother Lenny, my older bro', The Bobfather.
Desert Chile. Desert image and peppers from a magazine. Copy of one of my photos. Gesso. Moon Tales. Marbleized coffee filter, old storybook text, gesso resist painted over with Twinkling H2O's, ripped up index card, journaling sticker.

Your journal backgrounds are fantastic! I love the idea of written art journals, but I can't bring myself to write anything in them, so mine always end up art journals.
