Cynthia's Circle Journal Pages

I finished the circle journal pages for my friend Cynthia last night. Her theme is Five Words to Describe Yourself. Like several of the other pages that I have done, the decision of what those words would be was harder than I expected. I had thought this journal project would be a test of my scrapping skills. I didn't expect it to turn out to be as thought provoking as it has been.
I had really wanted to use more of the Moravia paper for this layout, but I couldn't make it work and ended up using brown, sage and red cardstock and patterned cardstock from Basic Grey's Mellow collection. After I was done, I realized that the colors are all fall, and that I am truly into the season now. Cyn wanted pictures of the creator, so she got pictures; of me all the way from baby Lynette to adult Lynette of thirty years ago. Very Historical. Cyn knows what I look like, so I wasn't too concerned about a current picture.
I feel good about this page as I have felt good about most of the pages I have done recently. The best part is I get to give it to her in person when I go to Denton in two weeks.
