Oops yet again.

I am back with the latest craft offering. Must admit that I haven't had as much time to do things just recently. A bit of extra work and some back ache have prevented my creative juices flowing.

My small local circle of friends CJ is coming to an end and these are the last pages in the books. It's swap over day this weekend and will be great to see what creations will greet me when I get my mitts on my CJ. It's a first CJ for the other 3 adults taking part and also for the daughter of one of the ladies. My 2 girls are old hands, almost, at adding LO's in CJ's for those wanting to see their work. I gave everyone enough time to sort out their stash and get pages done. No honest Deb 4 weeks is enough, but sometimes you just need to make the time. LOL. Not sure if we will get to do a 2nd CJ between us, as one found it hard to fit in with her life, and another went from a full time teacher to being a part time one, and is going back to full time in Feb. So she won't have as much time on her hands from then. Shame but it happens sometimes I guess.

The CJ this time was entitled Life's A Beach and was about your most tranquil place. I chose the beauty in Yosemite for mine. The journalling is tucked away in a mini folded origami style album. (don't know the real name for the type of album lol) Papers are from BG and dress it up buttons and K & Co word stickers form the main embellishments.

DD1 chose Discovery Cove in Orlando as her restful place .

DD2 went for the beach. This one is in St Pete's Beach, Florida at sunset.
