A Friend Came Back To Me

Today in the mail, my Circle Journal returned to me! A year ago October, 12 beautiful ladies began a journey. Putting together our favorite papers and embellishments in a box, along with an album, we sent it on it's way to each participant. I had a lot of fun doing this, and today the wait paid off!

I am so very pleased with my book. The gals who joined in this are some of THE most talented scrapbook artists I have encountered. I learn something from them all the time and am so grateful that I was part of this. I have also become very good friends with some of them, and I am so grateful that they are in my life!! Through some rough patches they have been such a boost to me and I love them very much.

A big thank you to Kathi who organized this baby. It was truly a great experience for me. Now I can't wait to fill it with wonderful photos and keep it out for all to see!

Here are the ladies who participated -

Myself, Elaine, Joy, Jessica, Courtney, Serene, Lisa, Jenny, Kathi, Ceci, Stacy, and Carrie

I put each artist's name on the page she did so you can see who did which page. Please enjoy the slide show!

Victoria did Damon from Vampire Diaries

Desirae did Bill (TB)

Sophia did Edward

My Granddaughter Gianna did The Corpse Bride

Granddaughter Aelyn did Snow White

And the man himself, Santino {read me ;)} did Frankie

Some previous years -

Hubby did Elvis

JB did Batman

One of the grand d's did Cinderella

MaryAnn's Gizmo, I love Giz!

JB's Leonidas from 300

Some really cool pumpkins, huh!

I have really been working on getting my mini-books done, they're coming along nicely. When I complete the east coast nieces I'll slide show em for the blog. The kids are off Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, so I'm going to hit Ontario Mills a major shopping mall here and try to kick some Christmas gift butt! I want my stuff done by Thanksgiving weekend, and I usually do it so, I need to get going.
