Circle Journal: My Favorite Trip Entry

My first journal arrived in the mail last week and I was so excited to work on my first book! This journal belongs to D and she picked "My Favorite Trip" for her theme. Let me just say that she put together some beautiful pages for her book! I just love seeing these pages up close.

First I had to decorate a tag to "sign in":

Of course, there was only one trip I immediately thought of for my entry in D's journal: our "Disneymoon" trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando. There was never a question that DW was where we were going when we were planning our honeymoon. Neither of us has ever been there and what a better way to experience it for the first time than with my husband! We had so much fun and I so loved scrapping some pictures from that trip again. I did a two page layout, size 8x8

Let me tell you, I blew through my Xmas Red Stickles and I have found a new love: painting raw chipboard with acrylic paint and then covering the crap out of it with Stickles...oh baby!

So this book will be off to the next in the circle tomorrow and I'm impatiently waiting for my next one! So far so good, it's been a great experience doing my first circle journal.

  1. What a gorgeous entry for circle journal - I was in one of those a couple of years back - one of the girls flaked and took 2 of the books! I never got mine back - all I have are pictures I took before I sent it (photos are on my blog) The stickles effect on the painted chipboard is awesome!! I will have to try that (painting sure looks easier than covering with pp!)
