Bo Bunny's Layout Challenge! ~ CIRCLES!

My fellow team-mate and dear friend Mireille Divjak got to choose the challenge for the layout challenge this month and her pick was to use circles in your design!  I wanted to use some of the new collections so I went with the new 'Enchanted' collection from Bo Bunny (I love this collection because it is like an open canvas, ready for paints, inks and other mediums to dress them up!)....but for me, when I think circles, I think of 'Timepiece', so I combined these collections for this layout. 

And speaking of timepiece, I immediately thought of the Dusty Attic's Skeleton clock frames to embellish this page (another circle design!).  I took this photo of Chloe when we were at a local Apple festival last month, we were relaxing, taking a break and just watching the crowds walk by.  I see this photo and realize how quickly my little girl is becoming a young lady, I can't believe she is 13 already....where did the years go?
Here are a few close-ups of my page...
The large pink bloom is just a flower from an inexpensive hairband.  The clocks were cut from a Bo Bunny Patterened paper from the Timepiece collection (I just added some Platinum Stickles to dress them up a bit, and attached them with foam pop-dots)
I used a couple of different sizes of the Dusty Attic Skeleton clocks, painted them with some gold paint and dry brushed some turquoise paint on them. 
The pretty black flourish design is from the Bo Bunny 'Enchanted' Chipboard collection. 
TIP:  I like to use these versatile black & white papers in the 'Enchanted' collection by adding just a dash of color (for example using some bright pretty double dot cardstock with the page) ....or like in this case, I used some brown and tan chalk ink to give the page a 'vintage' look.  I added a little mauvey pink chalk ink in a few places coming out behind my photo to add a little more subtle color.  You can adhere the chalk ink with either a make-up sponge for a subtle effect or use the Tim Holtz alcohol ink applicator/and pad to apply the colors (working from the outside edges in).
