Circle Journal - Part 2

As of yesterday everyone has their own circle journals back YIPPEE!! So now I can share with you what I did in each of the others' journals.

The first journal I worked on was Tracy's. Her theme was 'My Home Town' and she had a little binder album which was very cute. I decided to put in quite a few photos of Rotorua sights so I added a little flip page to the album. The flax paper, tiki and Maori ribbon all worked really well. If you want to check out the rest of Tracy's album on her blog click here!
Next was Zeetra's 'Cookie' album. Some yummy treats ended up in there! Check out her blog here to see the rest of her album! My girls really loved me doing this album too because they got to help with the 'research' LOL
Then it was time for Kirstin's lovely album. She added a new element to hers - and altered jig-saw puzzle piece! Her album was titled 'Pieces of Me' and I really enjoyed working on this one. I had just done a class involving a little bit of doodling and it shows in the pages I did for her.Rangi's album was next. She did a gorgeous album which she called 'Delicious Desserts'. I haven't got a photo of her front cover but she used ribbon letters which was fabulous. This was another one that my girls enjoyed 'helping' with. We actually had the dessert for breakfast so that we could photograph it in daylight LOL

Nie's album was next... and it was a very sweet album called 'Simple Pleasures'. It was a neat time to think about all those 'little' things that make you smile everyday. It also gave me a chance to use some of the neat stuff I bought at SENZ... love that background paper!!!The last album I worked on was Rebecca's. She titled her album 'A Journey Through Time' and we could choose any time period we liked... I did mine about growing up in the 70's and how life was so much slower than it is today. A huge bonus with this album was that I was able to see everyone else's work and see all our different styles come together in one album.I love having my album back and everyone else in the group feels the same although it's a little bit sad too so we've decided to do another one starting early next year :) Thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments... it's been so wonderful hearing what everyone has to say :)


  1. great layouts that you created Shell. I have to admit when I finish one I feel a little sad too. It's a great way to make some new friends and to get to know some others more.

  2. So very cool :) I'm going to have to join one of these cj's in the new year I think.

  3. Gorgeous Shell:)

    I love seeing your pages all over again..and one I missed.

    Your style is your own and I'm always soooo impressed.

    Luv ya:)

  4. Wow! What a cool project to be involved with! I think it's a fabulous idea and like Janine said a great way to get to know new friends.
    Your work is beautiful! Kate-PP.
