Photo swap and Circle Journal

Norbiba received my layout in the mail today, so I can show it to you now. I sent her a picture of Fleur taken in our backyard on a sunny day in April. I had to work with a picture of Norbiba wearing one of her favorite outfits.

Here is the layout made by Norbiba. Thanks girl!


And here is my layout made for her.


I also finished a spread for a Circle Journal (CJ) lately. This CJ was about ribbons and flowers. On the left page you had to make a layout with these elements, and the right page had to be about yourself. There is a hidden tag on the right page with some facts about me. I am not really satisfied with this spread, but don't know why. Well, I think I have an idea. First of all, I am not good at making spreads. The more I look at this spread the more I realize that both pages make not 1 layout. Secondly, I think it has to do with the fact that I am not really enjoying this CJ anymore. It has nothing to do with this CJ album in particular, but with this CJ cycle. It seems like this group is not as motivated anymore as it was in the beginning and that makes working on someone's CJ less fun....at least for me. This was my first CJ and I have a very strong feeling that this will be my last.

Wat een mooie LO heb je gemaakt voor Norbiba, Ingrid!
Maar ook de LO die Norbiba gemaakt heeft, is erg mooi!
Jammer dat de CJ niet helemaal loopt zoals je verwacht had! Da's altijd maar weer afwachten!!

I know what you mean about the CJ. I've participated in 4 and one of them was a real struggle too. People dropping out, or just not doing what they were supposed to do. That really is a bummer, especially when you enjoy doing it and take time and effort.
Oh and why don't you just come up some time and go out with A and me ;-)

Oh - you really rock when you do photoswaps! I think that both of you have made some awesome LOs!

And I completely understand your thoughts about doing CJs. I don't do them anymore. I have participated in 3 and 2 of them got back to me (not completely done) and the last one I never saw again!
Anyway I think you did great on your spread. Love the colors and how you mixed everything! :)

Hi Ingrid,

I love your lo for Norbiba! Really beautiful girl! Funny to see that you two used the same stamps... :)

And I totally know what you mean about the CJ... You know how I think about it, I will be glad when I finished all of the lo's. It's my last time also (too bad, because I did one CJ before and that one was more than ok...).

Wauw Ingrid dat zijn mooie werkstukken. Je lo voor Norbiba is schitterend geworden.

Ik doe ook mee met een CJ en ben bang dat het ook mijn laatste is

O I do love those swap LO's you made, they are both so beautiful. And I have done 2 cj's and not doing another one I think. People seem to lose interest the longer it takes...

Norbiba said...

Erg leuke LO's :-) (ook al heb ik er eentje zelf gemaakt)

Fijn dat je de swap leuk vond...dus voor mij van herhaling vatbaar...doe nu als het ff kan met alle fotoswaps mee :-)

Ik doe niet mee aan een CJ (weet niet eens wat het prcies inhoud) maar die 2 LO's zijn erg leuk!!
