Full Circle

Today I have lots of circles to show you and both projects make me really smile.  Let's get right to it!

I've been helping a few friends locally with baby invitations.  During the process it made me realize that I do NOT have a lot of baby crafting supplies on hand.  I guess you could say I've outgrown that department in the crafting section.  However, I was able to pull a few supplies and make some fun cards. I was going through some of my paper that has been neglected and found the pretty Mocha Morning Specialty DSP.  I haven't played with this gorgeous paper enough.  Check out this great paper!

Nice paper! I found the Polka Dots and wanted to make a baby card with it.  I also pulled out my Button Button stamp set.  Check out today's card:

Today's layout was inspired by another layout seen on Pinterest.  You can see the layout HERE. I loved all the circles on this layout.  What I love more is being able to find a layout I like and creating it using My Digital Studio software.  Sometimes it's hard to start with a blank canvas and know which way to go with it.  It's much easier to start from scratch when you have a little inspiration standing in front of you. 

This photo of Brandon will go down as one of my favorites. It was taken this past fall at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC.  It was the first time any of us had seen it and it was the one place my Dad wanted to go while they were visiting.   We were looking for a friend of my Dads.  He had died right in front of my dad when he was in Vietnam.  They were best buddies.  I can't describe how emotional this visit was for my family.  Seeing my dads face when he looked at the wall was incredible. Almost disbelief that he was actually standing in front of it.  My kids were fascinated with the history and Brandon kept saying, "Look at all of these names!"  Interestingly enough the picture I took of Brandon is one of my favorites because you can see the reflection of names on his white shirt.

Below you will see a list of downloads I used for this layout.  One of my favorite downloads from this week is this one:

I hope you are having a FANTASTIC Tuesday. We have a Family Fun Night Celebration at the kids school tonight. We are hoping to watch the principle race on a tricycle.  Hope she doesn't wear the pretty heels I always see her in.  Of course this could make the whole thing even more funny. Have a fabulous day and make something pretty using Circles.  Share your creations with me.  I would love to see them.
