Scrapstuffz "Inspired by" July Challenge

     Today is the big reveal for my first official Scrapstuffz design team piece.  Here is our inspiration piece.

     It really took me a while to decide what I wanted to do with this since I knew right away I didn't want to go the 4th of July route.  What I ended up using was circles and the color scheme.
     The first thing I did was lightly mist the paper, but I wanted to have the spotted look - not even color.  It's much easier to notice in person, but it really adds to the overall effect.  The circles are cut using the Creative Memories circle system...one of my first scrapbook purchases many years ago.
     My title was cut using Cricut Craft Room and the Jasmine font.  I used a text box and decreased the letter spacing and then made a shadow to have them stand out.
     I think my favorite part is that the half circle to the right of the top picture is a tab to pull out hidden journalling.  I always want to journal, but feel my poor handwriting takes away from the pages.  This was the perfect solution.
     We really hope you'll come over and join us this month for the challenge, and I can't wait to see how the picture inspires you.
