"Don't Follow Your Dreams Chase Them"
by Di Garling

Hello bloggers. I hope you are all enjoying your day off with family & friends & perhaps you might even get a little time to fit in some "scrapping". Today I want to show you a layout I did recently, & yes you guessed it, I have used circles again. I am really into circles at the moment as I find them such a great design accent & they always look so good  on a layout. You might remember my last post I did here on the blog  where I again used circles but in a totally different design (Sweet Layout).
2 Crafty sell these amazing 12" x 12" Nested Scalloped Circles, there is a whole lot nested onto one sheet in all different sizes, really great value. Here I have used two of the smaller sizes out of my sheet. I have simply painted them black so they really stand out against my heavily textured background. This is the easiest treatment to achieve maximum impact.
In the top circle I have cut my photo to fit the circle exactly, & on the bottom circle I have simply just tucked my photo in. Either way works well. 
 Next on my layout I have used this fabulous 2 Crafty phrase,
  "Don't Follow Your Dreams Chase Them". I just adore this phrase, it would suit so many different themes & again I have simply painted it black to match my circles.  Well thats all I have for you today. Thanks so much for stoppin by, stay a while & scroll down through the blog for some inspiration.
Until next time.   Cheers Di  xo
