Going in Circles!

It's another Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs and we have a fun challenge coming your way this week!!  We are asking you to use CIRCLES on your layouts or projects!  There are so many fun possibilities with this challenge!!  I decided to use some negative cut circles on my layout, and here is what I came up with:



 
I have found a new love for my Cricut Expression lately and I decided to cut the border strips along the left hand side of my page and then use the Expression to cut all of the circles.  I used the centers of some of the smaller circles, to add back to the center of a few of the negative spaces, once I attached my paper to the layout.  I didn't want to create the same exact mirror effect on the right side of my page, so I decided to balance out the circle design by adding the View Finder sticker from Echo Park's Note to Self Collection.

I was pretty amazed that I got this shot of my hubby and the kids on Father's Day morning.  If you had seen us right before this was taken, you probably would have thought we were a crazy family!!  :)  We were trying to rush around and get everyone ready for church, but we wanted to sit down for a minute to give daddy his Father's Day gift.  With all of the chaos that had been going on minutes before, I was so in awe of how serene they all looked in this photo.  This is probably one of my favorite photos taken to date of my hubby and the kids.  I was very excited to get this one scrapped, and a little intimidated on how the end result would turn out, but I am definitely in love with this layout!!  :)

So, make sure you come play along with us this week and link up for your chance to win an awesome prize from our fabulous sponsor, Mold Muse!  If you get a chance, head over the check out Mold Muse and leave them a little love and thank them for being one of our generous sponsors!
