Running round in circles..

chasing my tail all day so it's very apt that the theme at Less is More this week is Circles. Got all the washing and ironing done, beds changed, and house spruced up ready to pack my bags tomorrow for my holidays on Monday. Really looking forward to spending a few days with my Mum and sister in the Peak District - Mum still doesn't know we're going so it should be fun on Monday when we show up out of the blue.
Back to circles:

I made this digitally then layered up the elements with foam pads to give some dimension. All the background papers are from Crafty Ann's digi shop, browns and blues from the Mottled Stone collection and yellow from the Funky collection. The digi stamps are from Daisie and have been coloured with promarkers. The sun and boats are shapes in Publisher, the birds are made using V's. The sentiment was created with Wordart.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - circles
Polka Doodle - summer
Cute Card Thursday - going round in circles
Bunny Zoes - fun in the sun
Secret Crafter - holidays
