I love to Circle Journal!!

The cover showing the theme: Simple Joys & Guilty Pleasures.
This is the first page in the book.  
This is my two page layout for the theme.

I think I've mentioned the Paper Crafts Club that I've been attending.  Six of us are participating in a circle journal.  I think they are so much fun!  I will be passing my book along tomorrow and getting another one to work on.  For my journal I used almost all Stampin' Up! products.  In fact, the only things that are not SU! is the flowers.  The book, paper and hardware are all SU!  The patterned paper is surely retired, it's been in my stash for quite a while and I love the bright colors.  I had plenty to be able to keep the coordinating paper throughout my book.

My friend, Martha asked for a quote from the Quote Book I shared last time.  So here is one of my favorites:
"It isn't the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it" -Anonymous
