Meljen's Designs Thursday Challenge

Hi everyone! I am guest designing for Meljen's Designs this month, and when I saw this week's super cute new releases, I knew that I just had to play along in today's challenge. Today's challenge is to make a card using circles.

I used one of the new releases - Fancy Little Teapot - for my card today. I typed a sentiment under it before I printed it out. I cut it out with Circle Nestabilities and colored it in with Copic markers. I followed an older Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for the layout, and all of these fabulous papers are from the October Afternoon Thrift Shop Collection. I stitched around the edges of all my papers and finished it off with some brads (more circles), and a bow.

Be sure you hop over to the Meljen's Designs blog to see the new releases!

On a personal note, today I am going to register for grad school. Am I crazy? LOL! I am so tired of going to school, but if I take 6 more classes, I will have a masters degree, so I'm kinda crazy not to do it. The school I go to goes by trimesters, so if I take one class per trimester, I can have my degree within a year and a half. Not too bad at all. I'm just lazy because it's an hour commute each way at nighttime, and I'm tired of writing papers. Oh well! Hopefully, it will make me a better teacher. That's the awesome thing about're always learning something! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
