Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge and Studio Calico Recipe Challenge Layout

So this week's challenge was to make a layout or card this sketch:
I followed the sketch pretty much exactly as it was drawn, but I did add some tags and what not for a Studio Calico scrap recipe challenge.  I am loving doing these challenges because it gets me to scrap instead of just read blogs and watch Youtube videos. 

Almost all of the paper is from the October Studio Calico main kit "On the Easel" which I think is still available.  The only paper not from the kit if the white cardstock (American Crafts) and the pink/blue cardstock (DCWV).  The diecut cardstock piece is from some Sassafras paper.  The Cricut cartridges used were Tags, Bags, Boxes & More (for the tags), Sweet Treats (for the gifts), and Simply Sweet (birthday).  Alphabet stamps (for the "girl") are Stampin' Up, I plan on using some LawnFawn alpha stamps to stamp my journaling onto the strips when I find some pics to put on the layout.  Ink used is Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and Antique Linen Distress Ink.  The buttons are random from my massive, but organized, collection. 

It was pretty fun to make this layout.  Came together in a couple of hours.  Thanks for looking!
