a new circle journal...

well it's finally finished. i'm hosting another circle journal swap over at the shack and it's the first mail day today. i didn't realize when i picked this theme how hard it would be do create my cj! but i finally did. i love the papers...they are from we r memory keepers. very fun! and i was inspired by an idea from friend sarah that i should be using more of my embarrassing large collection/obsession of ribbons and fibers. so i found this funky turquoise fiber i had received in a swap (probably a few years ago!) and it worked perfectly i think!! i had a fun (or frustrating!) time trying to come up with what to do for each month, but i like how they all turned out. i left it unbound for now, since i have no idea how big it will be when it's returned to me!

what i {love} about
