Drum Baby {Don't Stop Beating}

Hi friends! I spent all weekend crafting with family and friends at a staycation/scrapcation. We got a 2 bedroom suite, brought our tables and craft supplies and scrapped away the hours with VERY little sleep. Even so though, I got my craft on and completed so many fun layouts. I thought I'd share this fun one with you today!


We went to the zoo on Mother's Day and they had several drums in the Monkey Exhibit for the kiddos to play with. Reese had a blast making up her own beat! So fun!

 The title is from a Phillip Phillips song I heard when he opened for Matchbox Twenty in January.

 I used a circle background from the Silhouette store, made it larger and altered it just a tad. Instead of using it as a background, I glued pattern paper to it, used foam dots to pop a pattern or sticker behind it, added embellies on top of it and placed other items inside the inner circles. I left a few open and then added journaling and details in others. I them popped it over the background pattern paper so it'd be really 3D. The title was a perfect fit for the larger circle.

I used American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic for this collection. I'm starting to run low on it and that makes me sad.

So whattaya think?   Let me know and then go on and get crafty, y'all!
