Whammy!

So that friend I was helping the other day with her scrapbook page sent me a message today asking about her layout and how her pictures should appear on her page, color or black and white? My answer was BOTH. That led me to one of my FAVORITE You Tube channels: Stamp TV. I cannot seem to get enough of this channel. Gina K has some of the most amazing scrapbooking and crafting techniques that I've ever seen. Now I, myself, wasn't particularly interested in doing any "spotlighting" (click the link above for that featured video) like I was advising my friend to do, but watching this video... yet again.... got the circular visual in my head and then the mention of a bouquet of flowers, well, I was a goner. Add to that the new blog that I just started following by the incredible artist Ms. Vicki Garrett and WHAMMY... here's the project that just had to be freed!
I love how dramatic I can be! hahahahahaha! Anyway, I hope you all love this. Oh! I almost forgot to mention the original inspiration for this project... my new CTMH demonstrator Lori who doesn't really demonstrate (because she lives out of state) anything for me which is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a demonstrator!!! No pressure, regular monthly orders and fantastic service.... you guys really need to check her out! Tell her FitterTwit sent ya! ;)
*** I'm tagging Cricut for this post because I used my Spellbinders Large Circle Nestabilities (the largest one) and then cut a 4.25" circle on my Expression in black using the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge... that cart is a serious staple of mine!

This is really pretty...I'm gonna have to check out Gina K's video in my spare time. When was that again? Thanks for the sweet words about me and your card is stunning.

Oh Lori... I don't remember. Do a search for "spotlighting" and you'll find it. My card has nothing to do with spotlighting, but that's the vid that helped to inspire this one... hahahaha!
