Hip Hip Hooray Layout

I am seriously in love with sketches and things that make scrapbooking easier. So, I bought a kit from Scrapbook Generation.  It came with 2 sketches and the supplies to make one of them. I added a few pages from my stash and was able to make both of them. There were a lot of scraps left over, so I decided to make another page with the scraps.
I decided to double up and enter the "bonus" layout in the Stuck On U Sketches sketch challenge this month.
I followed the sketch pretty well, I think. I loved the circle on the sketch. Instead of a solid circle, I used different size brads to comprise the circle. For the circle template, I used a salad plate and just pencilled in dots about every inch or so.  Then, I just added the brads to make the circle. I really like the way it turned out.
Thanks for looking!
