Getting going on this layout took a while because I spent way too much time looking for the hair I saved from this haircut. Unfortunately, it never turned up. :( This is the kid who is missing his certificate from the hospital with his footprints on it. I'm feeling a little guilty here...
Anyway, here is what I came up with. The 8/19 challenge on the boards was to choose at least 3 patterned papers and use them to fill holes left by die cuts. I cut 5 of the circle on this layout out of the blue polka dot paper. I attached the patterned paper to the yellow cardstock background. To give the blue paper some lift, I used some chipboard around the edges and a few spots in the middle (instead of foam tape, it's cheaper!).
You can see in the photo above, the lift is pretty subtle, but adds a bit of dimension. I added some more dimension with my embellishments.
