I heart Brussels - Jenni Bowlin

I almost forgot to share this last layout made for the Jenni Bowlin online crop. This layout I created for Leah's challenge "make the main shape featured on your layout a circle". So here's what I made, a layout using the JBS papercrafting kit from July 2013:

The photos were taken while we were in Brussels for a couple of days last February. Our very first vacation with just 4 of us, as Manon was skying in Austria with school. 

To accentuate the circles I embroidered and journaled around them and placed some flairs or buttons in them: 

This spotted fabric button is from the Purple Pumpkin shop:

as is this one: 

The other 3 flairs are from Simple Stories-Sn@p. (the flairs and buttons were not included in the kit). 

And a quick pic of the JBS July 2013 papercrafting kit

The online crop and the challenges are over now, but then I read on the JBS blog this:  

"We're also excited to announce the winners of our Spring Crop!  We loved the entries so much that we've chosen TWO Grand Prize Winners!  These talented scrappers will be showcasing our kits as guests in the upcoming months! Without further ado, our Grand Prize Winners are . . .

Wohoo!! How awesome is that?!! 

And now I'm off to scrap some more! Have a fab weekend everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!
