"Be Happy" by Julianne McKenna

There is something magical and soothing about circles. When included on a layout, they always look fabulous, but you must remember to keep your layout balanced and focused for the best result (working in "odd" numbers is often a good way to do this). 

To make the most of the circle concept in this layout, I fussy cut circles from The Bright Side of Life paper range by ScrapCake. I then added even more circles with raw wood veneer shapes, paper doilies, and flair buttons, all from the D-Lish store

I'm in love with these gorgeous pink butterfly flair buttons. They are so pretty and feminine, and look good with everything. Not a fan of pink? Well luckily, there are lots of colours to choose from in the D-Lish store, right here

Why paint raw wood veneer when you can wrap it in coloured wire and add Liquid Pearls for a pop of colour! And don't forget to add some vellum butterflies for a finished touch to your layout - it's all about the details. 

And you can layer fussy cut circles over the raw wood veneer, place a paper doily underneath, add some roses and carnations, and make gorgeous medallion embellishments. 

Flowers are always a must. I just can't get enough of them. And how stunning do these pink cabbage roses look with a bright pop of yellow from the Wild Rose

Just look at all those layers and details! I don't know about you, but this makes me happy.
