I went Fancy with challenge #21

well it's simple in design but I went the Fancy Pants route with my scrapping supplies.

This weeks theme/challenge....spots, dots, circles and such.



I started with this picture of Becca from Saturday night hanging out on my friends dock. Then I pulled out some "dotted" paper from the Fancy Pants "Celebrate" line. So the picture and paper layed on my desk waiting for some inspiration...it struck yesterday while at work. (Don't ask) Anyway no time to scrap until tonight. Talk about cutting it close. So 3 different sheets from the "Celebrate" line: Make Merry, Confetti, and Play which I cut into circles varing in size from 1" up to 2" (cut with my Cricut). For some dimension I used felt from the "Splash" set. (the smaller circles were actually punched out of some scallop pieces...thrifty I know) The chipboard is also by Fancy Pants, it comes "raw". I inked with ColorBox Chalk ink in Prussian Blue then coated lightly with stickles...baby blue.

I know the paper and felt was in stock at the Scrapbbok Cafe, not sure what is left now. ( I haven't been to the store in awhile.)

Love the layout!!!! (I may have to 'scraplift' this one!) The colors are so cheerful and I like the way some of the circles pop!

Darn, I thought I had commented on this one. Google reader has made me so lazy. :) Of course, I LOVE it. The funny thing about this was that on the Saturday that this challenge was posted, I finished my GDT layout using one of the backs of the sheets of pp in the kit as a background ... and it was polka dots. :)

The boat parade sounds so cool...
