completed my theme cj...

so here is the finished product of the 'my theme' circle journal swap that i have been hosting. the swap started back in december and has been a long and exciting swap. i have enjoyed this cj the most out of all the ones i have either hosted or participated in. i loved having each person pick their own swap and seeing how each one has turned out. i'm a little sad it is over!! but on to the next cj, i guess! and maybe i'll have to do this one again in december!

here are all the entries in my cj. everyone is so unique and amazing. the ladies that participated are all amazing.

my town...

this is my last entry for the "my theme" circle journal swap that has been going on for 6 months. i'm sad to see it come to an end. i will post my completed journal tomorrow. this entry is in joanne's journal, which the theme was "my town". i don't know much about the city i live in now, so i did the city i grew up in.

stamps: inkadinkadoo, green grass stamps
cardstock: night of navy, riding hood red
ink: onyx black & vintage sepia versafine, riding hood red

road map anyone...

the latest circle journal i've been working (and will post pictures tomorrow!) has a theme of "my town". so i was trying to think of a map or something to incorporate in the layout. well, i ran across this little goodie a little too late, but it's still pretty cute. so i wanted a chance (shameless plug!) to win it!! go check it out...it's by october afternoon.
