Why I Scrapbook Circle Journal...

I finished my first Circle Journal layout for my Circle Journal swap! This one is for Becca's journal, and her theme is "Why I Scrapbook." She also specified that it should include journaling! I had so much fun making this! I am calling it the 65-hour layout cuz I kept changing my mind as to how I wanted to do it - it's the only thing I got done all weekend - LOL. It's an 8x8 double page spread...Everything is hand-drawn except the words "life is" which are done with Doodlebug alpha stickers.

There are seven of us in the swap and the way it works is - each person comes up with a theme and then everyone in the swap group creates a layout for that theme and gives their layout to the person who came up with the theme, so she ends up with a whole album of layouts which include everyone's interpretation of her theme. Does that make sense? So I have seven different layouts to do - one for each group member. I have wanted to do a circle journal swap for a long time - it's so much fun to finally do one!

My goal is to get all seven layouts done this week - one a day. I hope I can do it!

OH - I just want to mention again about the voting over at Lotus Paperie. It's the final day and I could really use your vote! I am behind right now by two votes - aargh! I think it's over at like 8 am or so. So, if you wouldn't mind checking it out and possibly voting for me (if you like my layout) I would really appreciate it! Click here!

Have a wonderful Tuesday my friends! I will be back tomorrow with another update!
