July PageMaps

Happy July crafters today I am showing off the my July PageMaps layout. This month's sketch might be one of my all time favorites. You know how I love my circles I couldn't resist them.

I kept the overall base design of my layout the same as the sketch. I eliminated 1 photo from my layout and placed the 4 circles in a vertical strip rather than a square block.

(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Jillibean Soup Patterned Paper/Wood Veneer Butterfly/Stickers/Die Cuts/Flash Cards/Wood Sprinkles, Spellbinders Scallop border die, Hemp Twine, My Minds Eye Enamel Dots, Technique Tuesday Circle Metal Dies, Silhouette Cutting System and Image, Black Pen, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher and font Veteran Typewriter)

I couldn't resist pairing Jillibean Soup's Birthday Bisque with this photo of my daughter on her 14th birthday. The colors were a perfect match to her dress. Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting.
