"Circle Book" has come home

I was invited to join a Round Robin based out of Hawaii a couple of years ago. The exchange began July 2010 and ended in July 2012.
We were to pick a theme for our book and 21 other participants would contribute to it.  In exchange I would contribute to all their books.  All my contributions can be seen here.
My theme was simply "Circles".  Some people had rather complex themes and very detailed instructions.  I found some of them very difficult to work with, some quite a challenge and others a delight.
As I don't feel comfortable showing everyone's work on my blog (as much as I would love to) without permission, I invite you you to go to the Honolulu Altered Book Group's blog and look at all the participants work.  There is a lot, so plan to spend quite some time there.
The above pictures show what I sent out 2 years ago.  Below is the book I received in return last week, just bursting with the most amazing work imaginable.  The cute little purple binding rings I sent the book bound in were quickly replaced with much larger ones and I think I'll be looking for the three gargantuan rings I have carefully stored .... somewhere.
