Fabulous Friday - Inspired By Challenge

We are SO in for a treat this Fabulous Friday! The talented Erica has an Inspired By Challenge for us to savour and enjoy!

Without further adieu...

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm a bit of a magazine junkie ... and not just scrapbook ones either. I have a weird habit too of tearing pages out of magazines too for recipes, cool projects and ads that scream SCRAPLIFT ME! I keep them all in a binder by category and one category I have is inspiration ads.

Here's one that that I found a couple of years ago.
I think I was going through a circle phase and loved all the big dots, I also loved the linear look to the page and how every circle was filled with a picture or set of words. See where I'm going with this?

Well, I finally pulled it out of the binder and scrapped it. And here's what I came up with.

My circles are a bit bigger, some are photos, others are patterned paper and then embellished. I had to lose a row of circles for space because my circles are so much bigger, but it meant that I had more space to play with and the photos are easier to see the subjects in. I love how it turned out and I hope that it either inspires you to create your own page based on this ad, or to pull out your own ad to scraplift. Happy Scrapping!

I used Fancy Pants Like Father Like Son papers and stickers which are available in the store and lots of other goodies from my stash.
Thank you Erica for the fabulous challenge!
