October Afternoon '9 to 5'

This month I had the beautiful October Afternoon '9 to 5' collection in my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne. I thought it would be tricky to use, but the papers are pretty easy to use with any other theme. This pic of my son and my mum shows his personality to a T. I thought, well that's his full time job... to be silly and entertain everybody. Lol! 
I've got the inspiration for the circle background from a layout by the very talented Piradee Talvanna
 The biggest job on this layout was cutting all the circles out of chipboard. :)
 More sticker elements from this collection.
I stuck my title alphas down on a transparency, cut around it and then stuck it over the top of the 'holes'.
That's all for today! Thank you so much for popping by and for your lovely comments.  They make my day.  Have a great week!
Until next time.
