I love circles.

To me anything but squares are a challenge. I can cut smaller circles with a Fiskars Shape cutter but anything large, like this particular layout requires some innovative thinking.

Today's inspiration for my wedding album (yes, a scrapbook several years in the making now) was Sketches In Thyme Thursday Takes #49.

Two dinner plates, one of them from my bone china collection plus a pencil equated to two almost-perfect circles of the right size.



You'll notice that I used two techniques here: masking and double-inking.

Cardstock:
* Local craft stores

Embellishments:
* Dollar store finds

CTMH
* You & Me (June fundraiser)
* Soul Mates (D1254)
* Smokey Plum Ink (2147)
* Chocolate Ink (Z2111)
* Sorbet Ink (Z2164)
