Pinterest Inspiration + Creative Scrappers' Sketch = Morning Face

What is that title about?
As many of you know, I'm still trying to figure out my silhouette, and I have mostly used it for titles.  While surfing Pinterest, I came across a post by Nicole Nowosad for Scrapbook and Cards today.  She had a free cut file and a layout that really inspired me!  Combined with the latest Creative Scrappers' Sketch, I was off and running.
Check out Nicole's Layout here.
Check out the CS sketch here.
Figuring out how to import cut files is a whole new level of understanding the silhouette, but I did it!
These messy circles were totally appealing to me:
This is my eldest, taking a selfie first thing in the AM. Can't believe she is smiling.  If I had taken the picture, she'd be growling, or worse!
One of the most fun things about this layout was embellishing each little circle.

I dug through little bits of ephemera and added something to each one.  Lots of it is Crate Paper.
 Oh, and I discovered I had gold thread, which is funny because I don't sew, but I did stitch a little here---you can just see it under the heart.  I am really loving the gold accents lately.
I have been inspired by a scrappy friend (thanks, Julie T. W.) to use up my stash!  I am definitely not as disciplined as she is, but I have been hanging on to this paper from Prima for a long time.  I am not really a Prima girl, but these soft colors and patterns I loved, but didn't know how to use!  I do like how it came out though.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
