I signed up for my very first Circle Journal. So far, the experience has been SO exciting. There are 7 of us and each person chooses her own journal theme and then all of the other people make layouts, according to the theme, for her journal. All of the participants will be attending the SISiversary weekend in Franklin, TN in a few weeks. Usually circle journal go in the mail. Instead, we'll all exchange layouts at the event. All of the layouts are double 8 x 8s except for the one indicated.

This is the cover I made for my journal. It holds 8 x 8 layouts.

This is inside the front explains the theme for my journal.

Each person is asked to make tags that tell about themselves. I created this pocket page to hold all of the tags I will receive.

This is the layout I made for my own journal.

This is a 6 x 6 layout for a journal with the theme of "home".

This journal's theme is "Why I scrapbook".

This theme is "Guilty Pleasures" - Yes, I watch Kyle XY!

"Inspiration" is the theme for this journal. I was inspired by a set of note cards I bought at MoMA in NYC

This one was to scrap a song lyric and to include a picture of yourself...I chose "What was I thinking" by Dierks Bently. I highlighted some of my many hairstyles over the years.

The theme of this journal is "What makes you, you!". I included some self descriptive words along with other things that made me who I am today.

Since this journal, I've signed up for my second. I still haven't decided on my theme yet but I really do need to get crackin'!

Thanks for looking.
