Definitely an "Out of the Box" layout for me...

I "followed" a sketch for this layout {flipped it...} - the one above from this month's selection at Pencil Lines. I don't "do" circles generally...why I don't know...just don't gravitate towards them, so I did this as a personal challenge - to "stretch"' myself. The end result is kinda weird, but anyway! Another layout done...

Printed paper:- Prima "Delight" {Harmony Collection} Backing paper. Floral d/s paper:- Prima "Breeze" {Harmony Collection}. Alpha stickers:- American Crafts Thickers - Typo - Mustard. Flowers:- Prima. Velvet floral ribbon:- Prima Elysee Collection. Polka dot ribbon:- American Crafts. Gemstone Brads:- Chatterbox Deluxe brads {Fabulous Collection}. Paper flower with bling centre - Sassafras. Computer journaling & smaller circles:- various offcut papers.

BTW Jelly Tots are local sweets that are somewhat of a South African institution here...tiny little sugar-coated jelly sweets that are very popular with young & old alike.

They are brightly coloured - hence my rather bright colour choice!

I gathered the ribbon up by simply folding it along the circumference of the circles onto some pre-applied double-sided tape then secured it with some cellotape then readhered it to the base.

And there you have it...I added the paper Sasaffras flower with the blingy centre {above} & the glittery brads {spot the 4 on the layout...} as they look kinda like jelly-tots themselves. Happy Weekend to you all!
