Prompts for your CD Minis

 I hope all the people who took part in the first swap enjoyed it and had fun not only making their minis but also receiving them.

Now coming to the point when you get your albums..how do you complete it....I for one, love journaling...and will be using journal prompts...Journal prompts are question that you ask yourself and then make a page or do journaling as an answer to that question.

I will be adding extra pages within my album..so I can fully complete the journal as a discovery to my quirks..

Save these journal prompts for your future reference...answering these about yourself will bring out a lot of interesting stories and these stories will shape the follow of your mini in a interesting fashion....Hope you have fun!!!
