One of the cool things I've learned about Melanie through this Circle Journal process is that she and her hubby have a close, fun relationship. They have some really awesome adventures together! Melanie sent me some photos of an off-road trip she and her hubby took across the Mojave Desert in So Cal - I chose one of she and her hubby to use as the focal point on the page.
Their closeness in the photos inspired me to choose warm, comfy colors like the papers from the "Early Bird" line from Cosmo Cricket. Melanie is also fond of "vintage" so I added some baker's twine and other well-loved looking items. And of course stitching always adds that home-made touch!
Melanie also sent me some awesome photos of a cave and other things they saw during their trip. I created a pocket from a 7Gypsies Photo Carousel folder and inserted extra photos and some journaling spots for her to fill in if she chooses.
I love the 7Gypsies Photo Carousel and ATC carousel refills--the shape of the cards and envelopes is fun and doesn'nt have to be used on the Carousel. I don't even own a Carousel ;) but I still have tons of the refills on hand to use.
Thanks for checking out my sneak peeks of Melanie's page!
