Going Round in Circles........

 Over on Anything Goes this week's theme is " Going Round in Circles!"

I've made a card for my Step Dad Norman, he is 60 next month! I used a tri fold card with a scalloped front but I have cut it in half and stuck it back together! It is decorated in Dovecraft Masculine themed paper. The Happy Birthday greeting is from a Crafts-Too embossing folder. I lightly inked the punched letters with Versa Magic Cloud White to give the pearlised blue card a Denim look!. To finish I added some Cricut stars and a few gems.

I feel as thought I am going round in circles! Nothing has gone right for me this month and to top it all off I got the dreaded sickness bug at the weekend! Why me! That meant I missed my sewing class on Saturday, I didnt move far from the sofa. So Sunday I made up for it and caught up on a bit of scrapbooking, again with a circle theme. I had great fun with a piece of string and a pencil to design this layout! Im really pleased with the finished page as it includes 12 photos! I kept the backround simple by just adding a title, ribbon, flowers and jewels


Lol! Look at me and my Aunty Tricia playing with the table confetti!
