This month I had Monica‘s My Imaginary Friends circle journal. She asked us to each create a 2-page layout about ourselves sharing photos of our family & pets and answering the question “What is just one word that describes you?” After thinking a bit, I decided on “optimistic” as I think it fits my personality perfectly. I’ve always been a happy, glass half-full person and believe there is a positive in every situation.

Supplies: Bazzill (purple) and miscellaneous (cream) cardstock; Making Memories patterned paper; QuicKutz Sunshine font, tab & circle dies; Fiskars and EK Success border punches; black stamp ink; Micron black pen.

    That is a great trait to have. I have always been the opposite but I am trying to be more optimistic. Great lo.:)

    I wonder if I should get involved in a circle. I get nervous about sharing my personal information (name, address) but sometimes I just don't want to worry about that and jump into some fun things like this.

    I, like Ter, have always thought joining a circle would be fun too. I just have never taken the plunge. :)

    Love your page! :)

    Great family photo. I try so hard to be an optimistic person because I think it makes such a big difference. Occasionally I have to settle for cautiously optimistic :)
