A 'Circular Journal' Page

I'm on forum where we have going what we call a 'Circular Journal' and every six weeks
or so we send a page to a different member for their journal. It rotates so when we have finished we will all have keepsake made each of the other members. The pages are 6"x6"
so they can be kept in a small album.

We use the use the likes/preferences of the member we are making our current page for. This time I chose a blue/cream colour combination, Sugar Nellie images, ribbons, bows and flowers from the 'likes' list. The images are coloured with distress inks and I used downloaded papers from Designer Digitals. I mounted the SN image Reflective on nestabilites curved rectangles and left one side open as a pocket in which to slip a tag with the name of who the page is for, who it's from, the date and details of materials used etc.
I find it is so satisfying creating these pages knowing the person's preferences and
now I just have to hope she likes it!!
