YES, I went a bit circle happy. Yes it might be overkill. Yes I know this, but I kinda like the way it turned out. LOL! First of all it so worked well with the picture I chose. My sweet baby Isabel is wearing polka dot pj's. She is only about 5 months in this picture and oh so cute. So I used my For the Love of Dots stamp set from Practicing Creativity Designs to make the background on my 12x12 layout. I inked it with Canary Colorbox Pigment, Pumpkin Pie, Pastel Olive and Chestnut Roan Colorbox Chalk Ink.
With my Cricut I cut various sized circles out of Basic Grey's Green at Heart PP. "Sweet Isabel" is spelled out in chipboard letters. Both from Basic Grey, one from Nook and Pantry collection and one from Green at Heart collection. I usually don't use chipboard only because I don't seem to have enough room on my cards to spell something out. My sentiments are usually stamped. But on a large 12x12 layout I have plenty of room. I finished off the layout with some ribbon from Cosmo Cricket - Honey Pie.
