I finished the next set of pages for my circle journal last night. The theme of this one was chocolate.
Everyday Cookies papers and photos by Katie the Scrapbook Lady from A Cherry On Top
Paint (bottom of page 1) by Christine Smith from The DigiChick
Swirl and heart stamps by Nancie Rowe Janitz from ScrapArtist
Wordart by me but inspired by Lisa Carter from Digital Scrapbook Place
Journaling background by Katie the Scrapbook Lady from A Cherry On Top
Shmootzy Alpha stamps (cookies in title) by Nancie Rowe Janitz from ScrapArtist
Digital Sketch by Bree Clarkson from ScrapDivas
The wordart says "I never met a chocolate I didn't love" - fonts are Artistamp Medium and CK Flourish. Journaling around the circle says "I love all kinds of chocolate, but I have a special fondness for -" - font is CK Marker. The chocolate chip in the title is CK Flourish.
These are the rules to play blogtag:
List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets.
Tag 5 friends and list them.
Those people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, and state the rules, and tag 5 more people.
Don't forget to let the people you tag know by posting a comment on their blog!
So, here goes. About me:
1. I can't stand for my ears to get cold, so I wear a hood or a scarf or earmuffs, even when it's in the 60's out.
2. Tight clothes make me itch.
3. When I'm out hiking with my DH, I'm afraid to cross streams. Seriously - I can't do it without help.
About my cat:
4. He lies on his back a lot, but hates to have his tummy rubbed (to look at him, you'd think he's inviting you to rub his tummy).
5. He wheezes when he breathes and snores when he sleeps.
Ok, now I need to tag 5 more people. Hmm . . .

Ok, that's all I can think of. Sorry guys!
