circles, circles everywhere...

I'm a square girl. Definitely like the square. I like symmetry. I like straight, evenly spaced lines. So, when I saw the Studio Calico Sunday Sketch for this week, which was all about circles, I thought it would be a good challenge to break out of my rectilinear rut.
Here's this weeks sketch, another winner by Susan Weinroth (I love her sketches and work).

I liked the possibility of this sketch so much, I had to do it twice. Here's my first take. The 8 1/2" x 11" version:
I used Easter photos, my Quilting Bee kit and added some new Sassafrass Lass border stickers I just picked up. Also used my new Martha 'classic' butterfly punch. I see this thing used all over the Studio Calico galleries and now I know why. They really are sweet. (I forsee abuse of this tool!)
Here's version 2, the 12 x 12 version:
Finally broke into the Joyland kit with this one. What I love about this layout sketch is how many photos you can include without overloading the page. This would be a great lead in page for a Disney album, or any occassion that has tons of photos that are destined for divided photo pages. I've got a few of these waiting to be made. This layout design will definitely get used again.
