Make My Circles Funky

I went over to TM with all intentions of straightening up my work table, filing the larger scraps and tossing the rest of paper BEFORE working on my challenge card.  I just happened to have 6 Sassy Cheryl images all colored up, and instead of cleaning, I went into Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog mode. The challenge this week was to use circles. Now how difficult is that?

It turned out not to be very difficult at all. I quickly got sidetracked in my cleaning, when I decided to take a quick glance through my digital papers notebooks. I had this image, "Just Saying a Little Hello Girl", from Sassy Cheryl Digi Shop, already with Copics, so I knew I was looking for something with purple and orange. I knew I had some paper with circles, but imagine my delight with this find from Raspberry Road Designs. This paper is from a kit called Groovy Garb. I took the liberty of changing the hot pink and the gold to purple and orange. I added some stacked circles of various sizing. I refused to center anyything. I think it makes it more interesting. Finally I created the sentiment in Photoshop.

This kind of reminds me of the Jimmy Dean Sausage Breakfast commercials with the planets orbiting the sun. Do you know the commercial I'm talking about?

Feel free to grab the sentiment.


  1. Shirley, Saw this on the Sassy group and had to come and leave you some love. This so adorable. Love the dp and the color and coloring are wonderful.
