Patricia's "Mom is Gonna Snap" layout was inspired by the circles elements within the sketch with lots of details displayed throughout her overall page design. I love how she interpreted the sketch and uses layers of subtle patterns and colors in her background, which allow for her embellishments to pop.
Supplies: Sweet Shoppe (6x6 Tiny Tablet, Chit Chat Stickers, Gumball Paper, Candy Stick Paper, Embellishment Bundle, Label Stickers, Circle and Tag Stickers), Pinwheel (Kite Strings Paper, Embellishment Bundle, Chipboard Stickers, Letter Stickers, Circle and Tag Stickers), Destination (Label Stickers, Chipboard Stickers)
"I love circles
in designs, so when I saw Cindy’s sketch, I started thinking of how I
wanted to use the circles. I came across this camera shutter
in the Silhouette shop, tweaked it by adding “snap” all the way around
"With the theme of the layout now set, I picked out my favorite
photo I took of myself in the visor of our car. I filled in the spots
of the shutter with papers from the 6x6 tiny tablet, layered the title
onto stickers, and used several
larger sheets of pattern paper to layer under the smaller cardstock
"My layout did not come out like the sketch at all, but it was very much inspired by it, but I still incorporated lots of circle elements with the stickers, chipboard, buttons, and brad."
I stuck close to the sketch design when creating my "Lollipop" layout and used photos that went along with the circle theme.

When I came across these images of my son when he was around five years old, I knew it would fit not only with the sketch but also with the Sweet Shoppe collection perfectly. I love how the deep pink color of the lollipop added extra color to the stark white background.
I wanted my page to have a lots of texture, so I shaved the edges of the white background for a rough, torn look and added machine stitched lines for extra detail. Round flair buttons, circle stickers and circle shaped pattern papers were used to continue with the circle elements for a cohesive look.
For my title, I used the from the "Lollipop" song by The Chordettes, to fill in the space on the page and layered them with smaller circle photos.
