Has it ever happened to you that you find a photo and you instantly think of a particular paper collection? That's exactly what happened here with this layout. Lo and behold I had no idea of the exact date the photo was taken and when I did (October 30, 2009), this great Fall collection was truly the perfect fit! Yay! Now, I truly started the layout thinking that I would use the cut file itself I had prepared in a vanilla cardstock, but once again, those negative pieces were calling to me. So to change things up a bit, I traced the negative bits onto patterned paper pieces and cut them out by hand. And guess what!? NO SKETCH! Just played with those cut wobbly circles until I found the mix I preferred and off I went to get my tape dispenser to glue them down. To ground them a bit more, I hand-stitched over them six or seven times with some gold and vanilla-ish embroidery floss.
