Going round in circles - that's me!

Good morning all

Well! - if ever a challenge was all about me its this one!

Over at Delightful Challenges we have a new challenge and the theme is 

Round up
(must include circles)

If ever anyone spends their time going round in circles its me! - sometimes I'm sure I met myself coming back!  Life's really busy at the moment - some of you may know that I scribe/type for my son who is severely disabled and doing a degree course.  It's his final year this year - that means dissertation 10,000 -words of it- due in early May! - he's almost there but there's lots of redrafting and moving of text going on so its pretty full on, then there's two essays and a presentation by the end of May -on top of that that there's just normal life to get on with - roll on June, then it's off to California for me yippee!! - but for now its back to the grind lol.

Ballerina Bobbi available here
and Spring sentiments available here

I just got this one done by the skin of my teeth (sorry Larelyn!) - I try to work ahead with my DT projects - sometimes one goes a bit astray - well a few of late if the truth be known - but I do get there in the end!

My main problem with this one was I forgot what I was doing!  I had intended to make a circular easel card - one of my favourites - but forgot that bit and after I'd coloured it - promptly cut it into a square!  and had half the card made before I remembered about the circle bit.  So I had to do a bit of a rescue job to make it back into a circle again and this was the result!

We have a fab Sponsor this week

and the prize is a $15 store gift card

This is what I did...
Image - Ballerina Bobbi by Digital Delights
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Sentiment - from the spring sentiments set
Papers - first edition birdsong
card - bazzill basics
Circle die  - Spellbinders
Heart banner - lala land die (cut in half (just love this - my newest toy!!)
Pink feathers - from Joanna Sheen (had them for years!)
resin rose and pearl heart - my crafty heart
Other embellies from my stash

I think this ones an easy challenge - look how easily i turned a square into a circle!! - my teamies at Delightful challenges have made some fab cards - call on in and bring your circle card with you 

see you there
