Forget Everyone & Be Yourself: Challenge YOUrself October Challenge

This months challenge on the Challenge YOUrself blogis to use an affirmation or saying. I had a browse through my sayings board on Pinterest and decided to use this affirmation to inspire me
I've been admiring layouts on Pinterest using circles and decided to dust of my circle punch and make this layout. 
I used a paper collection from Recolections which is based on an old MME collection, punched circles from random papers and arranged them into a grid. The collection also had a sheet of cut aparts which had some sayings on which seemed apt for the layout. 
I finished by adding a scatter of sequins, a couple of embellishments from my box and my trademark doily lol! I used some October Afternoon mini market letters to spell part of my chosen affirmation for the title. 
Overall I love this layout and will use this design again. It may even be one of my favourite layouts of mine.
