Spin - Circle Weekly Monthly Challenge


Hello, I hope all is well with you today. Well I am excited as I got another page done and it qualifies to be entered into two separate Circle challenges. First this is a Jana Eubank sketch that I just love. You use 3 photos on it and I love that as I take so many photos that I am always looking to add more to any given page. Don't you just love her work? I used DCWV the new Black Currant Stack that is just so perfect with my photos.
Then I was also able to use this layout for the Monthly Circle Tic-Tac-Toe challenge! And as you can see from the graph on the right I used the Button, Paper Ruffle and a Cut Flower to make this beautiful layout. The great thing about this challenge is you were able to choose your own criteria as long as it formed a tic-tac-toe. 
The flower I used was from Gypsy Wanderings and I hid the little cut out within the flower. All I used was a sheet of paper some foam tape scissors, gems and either glue or I used hot glue and you have a gorgeous flower. This video shows it is as easy as can be.


This video is of me putting the page together, step by step. I forgot how much fun it is to make theses pages and so rewarding!
Here are a few close ups. The flower has plenty of dimension but with the glossy paper it is hard to see as it reflects back at you.

I just love this paper and it is three different shades of pink.

I made the ruffle by first using my score board scoring 1/4" then 1/2" this is 2 12 inch strips.

The rhinestones are just perfect for the center of the flower!
Another close up of the ruffle. I adhered the ribbon with a hot glue gun.

I hope you liked today's post. Our little Sydney is so photogenic and is such a little tom-boy.
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. You comments continue to inspire me.
