My Holiday Circle Journal made its journey back to me this week

A great big thank you to Angie who hosted this awesome swap. If you don't know what a circle journal is, its something that you pass around to everyone who are in the swap and it eventually makes its way back to its owner. We had 3 weeks between people to get each our pages done which was plenty of enough time. The whole project took about 2 months I would say, maybe longer. The subject of my book was: What is your favorite Christmas ornament?! So each person filled out 2 pages (one page was about themselves and the other page was what their favorite Christmas ornament is) and then sent it onto the next person. I still need to finish my cover. I need to borrow someone's Cricut and cut out some cute letters (Ellie maybe?). In this swap, there were 7 of us including me, Cindy Hoch, Angie Reece (hostess), Pam Speidel, Suzi Ferguson, Terry Helin and Kim Hutchinson. It was great fun and I can't wait for Angie to host the next one in the Spring. Angie, we're waiting to hear what you come up with. LOL

So were there 7 books then? Did you each pick a theme or did you do the same pages 7 times so everyone got the same book?Sounds fun. I'm still doing exploding albums, I've made 18 of them so far.
