Today, I'm sharing another layout using a sketch from Kelly Purkey's Sketchbook 4 class. It's all about circles. I don't often use circles on layouts, which is strange, because I really love circles. It's often only when I'm challenged with a sketch that circles make an appearance. Crazy, I know.

When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to scrap these pictures of my niece playing with bubbles. St. Patty's day was beautiful, so she hauled out this huge container of bubbles and we played for a long time; chasing and blowing and popping. Good times.

It was fun to imitate the bubbles using a circle punch. I also enjoyed placing the title moving up the page, like a bubble. I used the Dots and Stripes collection from Echo Park. One of my favorite collections from them. I also used some Amy Tangerine and Elle's Studio.

The weather report for this weekend calls for rain. I don't mind. I really want to stay in and scrap!

What are you up to this weekend?

Ah, rain is the perfect scrapping weather! No excuses needed to stay home and scrapbook. Very cute layout. Love the circles bubbling out from the photos. :)
