It's wonderful to see all the lovely work people have done, and I'm looking forward particularly to seeing the photos from pinkangel and Jill, as those were the first journals I had, and there wasn't much in them yet.

It wasn't to tease people that I only posted half the pics; the journal is bigger than my scanner, so I have to do two scans each time and then stick them together - it gets tedious!

It was interesting working in such different size books - I think rhicoo and I had the biggest ones, but differently laid out, perhaps uluru's was the smallest.  A different challenge each time.

OMG gorgeous. This is really beautiful. I want to touch it. It evokes a sense of "I want to pick you up and fill you with doodles and notes," which means that if it were in a store I would buy it and then never write anything in it because I would never think anything way good enough to tarnish the pages.

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

I certainly won't have that trouble - I think mine will be the tiniest journal I've ever worked on either!
