One of the highlights of my recent trip to Hawaii was going to the Kualoa Ranch. Besides the ziplining being AMAZING, it is also just a stunningly beautiful location. We had this lovely photo taken of us during our ATV tour, with the forest and mountains in the background. I couldn't resist scraping up a nature themed monochrome green layout to match.

I loved the original string circles when Scrapmatts first brought them out. Then Sofie and Andrew made them better by bring out new designs with dots, stars or arrows on the circles. Last month they expanded the range again to release a pack with larger sized circles! I fell in love and knew I had to play with them right away.
My circle for this layout looks a bit more like an oval, because I actually chopped it in half to open up that inside area a bit more. It doesn't go all the way around under the photos or the flower cluster. I love cutting up my chipboard to make it last that little bit longer or get it to suit my layout better. I've done the same thing with the leaves and the diamond background pieces. You can see what I mean in the photo above.
