WM #42: scrap-a-licious entry #2

It's Scrap-a-licious
It's Scraptastic
It's Scrap-a-cool!

It's another card made from scraps! 
This is my 2nd entry into the wee Memories "Use Your Scraps" challenge #42.

I designed this card for my card class next week that I am teaching at church to 1st and 2nd graders.  I grabbed one of the leftover paper pads from doing my niece's life album (due this June when she graduates HS) and punched circles.
I have other stacks too that I think my students will enjoy with this design.

 I punched the circles and adhered them randomly, with some hanging off the edge:

Once they were dry, I cut off the edges to make it look like the circles were a part of the paper: 

 Sydney Dog came over to help with the photos:

With permission to share from her, here's a layout from my niece's album using the paper pad:

Supplies for card:
Paper: g.c.d. studios "Canta" line
Punch: 1 1/4" EK Success Paper Shaper
Stamp: Hero Arts "Everyday Sayings"
Ink: Memento, Distress Weathered Wood
Other: Baker's Twine, gem

Thanks for coming by today!
Have a wonderful!

P.S. I am still doing the P90X at 6 AM every morning.  I am on week 7!
*maybe* I'll share photos here of my rock hard biceps when I finish the 90 days, hee hee

That is really creative Kelly. I like all those circles and how you had some over the edge. What a fun card! Nice work!

This is a great-lookin' card, Kelly, and a fun use of scraps!
I adore Sydney! My little guy likes to hang out with me while I'm taking pictures of crafts, too. :o) Aren't they sweet?

What a cool way to use your scraps, if I hadn't finish reading your post I'd had thought the patterned paper was originally like that with those pretty!
