My Own Accents - hand cut circles

I wanted a layout where I could use several of the photos from this day. I also wanted to convey the feeling how quickly our youngest grandson was crawling this way and that and so the other accents needed to be simple.
SO.... I picked up this one piece of patterned paper by Scenic Route that I just love and I cut out one big circle. I wanted it to be uneven and out of shape. I then just starting cutting circles out of that biggest circle. Because the paper is two sided, I could use whichever side I wanted and it looks like I used two different papers. I simply kept cutting circles out of the biggest circle and kept putting them around my layout.
I love the look of journaling paper so I used this journal paper from Scenic Route and used my Stampin' Up journal hole punch to make it look like I had torn it out of a notebook. The Tonic paper distresser and a quick rub with a brown stamp pad gives it a bit of a distressed look.
