Stacy H-W's September Grid Project

Hi, it is Stacy here again with my take on this month's fun Grid Challenge. I must admit that I was pretty excited when I heard the challenge for September. I tend to be a symmetrical scrapper and grids are something I just love to scrap. I was debating between circles and squares until I saw this fab layout at Write. Click. Scrapbook by Christa Paustenbaugh that totally inspired me to get out my circle punch and go crazy!

My hubby and I went on a special vacation this year to celebrate his 50th birthday. We took along my BFF and her hubby. We had the most FABULOUS vacation EVER! And I have a ton of photos that I want to scrap. The inspiration layout by Christa just had the ideas flying.

I started by punching 25 circles out of scrap paper and laying them in a grid pattern on some cream card stock. I spritzed on some Glimmer Mist in Sun Sisters and Peach Delight. After I let that dry I threw away the scrap circles.

Next I got out some really fun Echo Park Paper - Splash by Bella Road and I punch out approximately 25 circles. At that point I wasn't sure how many photos I would be using.

I went through the photos from our trip and then printed out 2 sheets of them in 2x2 and 3x3 sizes. After going through them and punching them out also. I decided on the 10 (!!) photos I used. I pulled out some random embellies from my stash and went to town finishing it up. I had to add the quote because it was just the perfect fit to describe our vacation. After adding some journaling it was finished.

What do you think?? I love how it turned out and I love that I could use so many photos on my layout.
