The circles just exploded all over this page!  In my last post I mentioned a Fiskateer's challenge to create a layout using CHA in the title.  Lucky for me, I have a cutie pie nephew named Chase.

I created the title tiles in MS PowerPoint by drawing an auto shape box.  I added the woven mat background, changed the black line to 6 point weight and added the letter--88 point Algerian font.  The patterened paper is all DCWV La Creme stack and the brads are Spare Parts from The Paper Studio.
All my circle cutting tools participated on this layout.  For the large, torn circle, I pulled a big salad bowl out of the kitchen and traced around it.  Then I wet my tracing line and carefully tore around it.  For the largest of the smaller circles, I used the Making Memories circle cutting tool and mat.  I punched the remaining circles using the Fiskars Round n Round XL and L punches, The Paper Studio 1 inch circle punch and a half inch circle punch from Marvy Uchida.

I may not be finished!  I'm kicking around the idea of adding a small journaling block in the lower left corner. 

Thanks for visiting!  Please leave a comment and let me know your opinion about the journaling block.  I appreciate each and every comment received.  Have a terrific day!


  1. Really enjoyed the detail in that post. If you are adding a journalling block then it has to be circular! LOL

  2. Fablous layout! Each photo pops! Fantastic way to highlight lots of pics!

  3. Cute! Love all those circles! I personally think I would add a journaling piece tucked up under the lower circles.

    I just wanted to stop by and say a special thank you for your comment about my Rock A Bye Baby guitar card on the Market Street Stamps blog! I really appreciate it!

    I'd love it if you stop by my blog {and even better if you become a follower!}
