Circle Journals

Beginning in February, I begin a new round of circle journals with the gals I scrap with. If you are not familiar with circle journals, what we do is each choose a theme and do a layout based on that theme. Then your book is passed around month by month, and each person participating does a layout in your book about the theme you've chosen. The books "circle" around from month to month. So each month I will have someone else's book and will do a layout for their book based on their theme. I feel like I just repeated myself, but hopefully you get the picture.

I chose "The Girl in the Mirror" as my theme. What I want everyone to do is come up with a word that describes them for each letter of their name. This was the first time I ever did pages that were just about me, but as you'll see from the pictures I found a way to sneak Natalie in there too!

These two pages do go together.. can you tell my lighting was different for each one? Ha..

I've been looking at monthly scrap kits and am considering trying one out. Any of you fellow scrappers have a suggestion on which one to try? There are lots to choose from on this site. I just can't make up my mind..

You did so good! I can't wait to start this round of circle journal swapping. I'll have to start thinking about what I am going to do with my name.

Looking forward to seeing you Friday!

Love your layout!! (I'm ALL ABOUT scrapping about yourself. I think it's very important to do so!)
