Sweetness.

This layout is featured on the Scrapbook Circle blog today.  It's featured because I participated in challenge #53 which is to mix patterns on a layout.  I had SO much fun sifting through Pinterest inspiration to find something that spoke to me.  Here is the inspiration:
source found HERE
When I decided to do the circles I had to scour the house for round items, my desk looked hilarious with bowls cups, lids and assorted circle items.  I traced them and then sewed around the circle--it was a little tricky but eventually got it right!
 closeups of my lovely stitching:

 to cut the circles I used my silhouette and then sorted the extra pieces into patterns that didn't have the same design...almost had my 10 year old come and help me.  He is a FANTASTIC sorter!  It all turned out the way I imagined and it was FUN!
If you want to play along ALL the info can be found HERE, there is a $10 shop credit up for grabs!
Thanks SO much for the visit I appreciate it!
