Oh the Places You'll Go!

My fellow DT member, Virginia, came up with a very clever Bookshelf Challenge. The idea was to use a children's book as inspiration for a LO. Cute right? So I decided on one of my son's favorite books when he was younger. It is by Dr. Seuss and it is called, Oh, the Places You'll Go! He and I used to read it quite a bit, when he was young enough to snuggle on my lap. (He is almost 12.......not as much snuggling going on........)

So I incorporated the circles, colors, and the title into my LO. I cut the circles using my Martha Stewart Circle cutter. I slipped my photo in there and added some bling to the circles. The title was printed on blue paper and hand cut. It was the most "Dr. Seussish font" I could find! LOL!

I am pleased with how it turned out.......a bit out of my comfort zone. If you would like to play along, head on over the Noel's blog to see what the other talented gals came up with!
Have a great day!!!

Hi Michele,
I love your layout! Great book to take it from as well.
I like the bling on your circles a lot. Are they buttons with bling on top or just what - kind of hard to see - but oh so nice!
