A Circular Challenge at Lasting Memories

This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is all about the circles! We started with this sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch:

Yup, I'm one of those Twilight freaks! Lucky for me, my neice is also into it, so we went to the midnight showing of New Moon when it came out last year. Such a fun thing for the 2 of us together! Still need to get a pic of the 2 of us to add to the layout, but for now I'm ok with the lovely faces of the movie characters (go Team Jacob!!!!).

Few fun things to note about this layout: First off, I really wanted a jumbo scallop circle for this, but didn't have one on hand. So...I improvised by punching out a ton of 2" scallops and tucking them behind the edge of my plain jumbo circle. A little "frillier" than planned, what do ya think?  Second, to emphasize the "circular" theme of the challenge, I added the 3 buttons on the top right, as well as the B&W ribbon with the big polka dots. And finally, to tie in with the movie vibe of the page, I added a piece of film strip from Ranger for a fun touch!  

Be sure to visit Lasting Memories and see what the rest of the DT has come up with, and give the circles a try yourself! You have until Saturday to link up your designs! =) T
