Something a bit different for me

Hi Everyone, my "something different" is using my new Tonic circle dies and using layers with them, do you remember this? it was "all the rage" a while ago, me? I'm always way after the fashion, so here she is, my layered circles Octopus Mom and Baby by Stamping Boutique. I try and enter the Facebook challenge and this month it has to be Green. I have had this image a long while, and decided it was about time I used it. The DP paper is by ScrapitDesigns, with a second sheet given an overlay of shells by Gina Jane, I embossed the top layer with another new toy, Bubbles folder by Scruffy Little Cat. The shells were fussy cut, both also by Gina Jane. Hair and baby glittered and a scalloped circle cut with my Cricut. The cut border is by Birds Cards. Here she is at last -

I always love circles, and when you add the scallop behind, wow! Fun colors, and I'm enchanted with that bubbles folder. It made your background paper look very pearly and right for this spritely water miss. Liking the way you repeated those scalloped shapes on the different elements, and particularly like the asymmetrical scallop border too. Pretty shell embellie. Thanks too, for the prayers for our blog buddy. TFS & Hugs
