Hello Everyone! Sorry it's been so long since I posted, but we've had visitors for a few weeks and I have a lot to catch up on.

I started a Circle Journal back in April and I got mine back during the week. I was bowled over by the results. Everyone put so much effort in, and shared some lovely stories too. Thanks a million for all your hard work.

Evonne said...

Audrey, glad it's made its way back to you! I have to say that your journal was fab, and it was a pleasure taking part. Also, the photos you have taken of the cover do not do it justice! Sorry - not having a go at your photography skills - but just wanted to say that in Real Life it looks SOOOOO much better!
