Take-Off Tuesday # 23!!

Hey there!! I have been out of it ALL weekend! I worked really hard to stay away from my computer so I could focus on some family time and let me just say.... I can tell I took some time off because putting together these next cards was a real challenge for me. Obviously my mojo is still on vacation and didn't get the memo about needing to be back in action... but I did get TOT done so without further ado.... our magazine pic:

Taken out of the CB2 Catalog (thats Crate and Barrel-Modern Edition). I have had this page dog-eared for such a long time. It's great to be using it finally! Here is my take:
I realized the things I loved about it were the contrast of circles. But I thought I should leave it simple instead of a bunch of little ones. I stamped in various colors on the circles and popped them up on dimensionals. Once again I used my new favorite sentiments set from Hero Arts.
Pretty simple design today. Hope you like it!!
Be sure to check back tomorrow for my card at 365 Cards.... I tell ya, my card is a little crazy, even for me. But its such a fun challenge I am sure you will want to give it a try! Hope to see you around. And please forgive me for being so behind in visiting your blogs. I promise I will get back into my regular program here soon... Can't wait to see what you all have been creating while I was MIA!!!

what a great card, it really is wonderful how you took the photo and were able to figure out what drew you to it, just fantastic job, great representation. I love it. It is hard to stay away from the computer, but when you do I find I am shocked by how much more time I have, ooppps!!!! I won't admit that to my hubby thought :)
