August Creations

I had a great time creating with the August Kit from Chicks In The Attic. It really helped me to create several pages that I had been thinking about for a long time. They have a good mix of product and texture....buttons and trims my fave!

CKU Circle Journal

This past weekend was the last CKU....ever. I really didn't think this would affect me in anyway, but last night I really missed my CKU-Anaheim gals. Two years ago, I went to California, all alone, to attend CKU as the winner of a Reminisce contest. It was an amazing weekend. I loved every minute. But there were a few people that I met in that 3 days that I have become good, good friends with. These girls inspired me, gave me courage, taught me to be grateful...I learned so much from each of them.
On the last night of CKU, we decided to each create a circle journal to remember our new friends. I flipped through this again last night and decided that I needed to share it here. It took a long time to get around the group, over a year, but I got mine back! {There are still a couple floating around out there *sigh*}
A circle journal is the perfect way to learn more about your circle of friends or family. Each person creates a theme for their book and sends it on it's way! As a group, you choose an order that you are going to pass the book and a time limit that each book can be with each person. In the end, it is a scrapbook that has been filled with unique pages to enjoy.

There are no words to describe my feelings as I walked 'America's Most Historical Square Mile'...{well, there are many words: gratitude, reverence, humility, respect, honor, etc.}
So I was quiet
and took pictures.

"I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition."
