My First Circle Journal is Completely and Totally Complete!

It's so exciting to have my first circle journal all done! Yeayyyyy! I took some time today to put the finishing touches on - such as divider pages, intro and ending and such. I'm so happy with how it turned out! I know I have posted pieces of it before, but I want to post it all together as a whole.....

Here's the cover (again)...
I added the guidelines to the inside of the cover, and also a pocket page to hold everyone's tags (click on any of these images to see the details)...

And then - here are the awesome layouts the participants added! (sorry for the glare on some of these photos - I didn't use a flash but still had some problems)

Here's Lori's...

Denise's...

Tracy's...

Peggy's...

Becca's...

and mine...

Then I added a divider page...

and included color copies of all the layouts I made for everyone elses journals...






and finally - a pic of our group (minus Peggy and CeCe who couldn't be there)...

and the back cover...

It's so exciting to have a piece of artwork from each of these wonderful women! I love how different they all are! I will treasure this little book!

So, now - I have a layer drying on a new art journal cover, and I'm working on my layouts from Gretchen's SiSversary class. I didn't get a chance to take the class, so I purchased a kit from Gretchen, and it looks like fun!

I wish you a super-terrific Sunday! I will be back tomorrow with another update!

Your circle journal is a treasure, and I think the way you finished it and added color copies of the pages you made was a brilliant idea. I was reading your earlier secret SIS posting and how lucky were you (and your SISters)! What great stuff!!!
