first day

I know we JUST finished up school, but I NEVER scrapped the pictures I took of my kids the first day!  October Afternoon had a sketch challenge in which they wanted to use their new release 9 to 5 (love it so much I ordered a pack of it after I have the whole line--it is SO fun!) and they provided this sketch:
I know there are circles!  I had to take a DEEP breath and came up with this (for those that don't know I have circle phobia....):
(sorry this picture isn't as bright as normal...was having technical difficulties and well...I gave up!)
some closeups:
yes, I hand stitched around all the cut out stars...(LOVE this wood grain!)
 LOVED using the stars instead of the hearts--this layout came together surprisingly quick!  Well, as always I'm on the run--need to return a trumpet to the music store today!
Thanks for the visit!
