I love the challenges Ali Edwards has in her book, "A Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper. This week's IdeaBooks4u blog challenge was taken straight from the book. The challenge was to simply use a bit of patterned paper as an add on to a circle.

Here's my 8 year old son playing the piano at a school fundraiser this weekend (a tour of homes decorated for Christmas). He never played in public before. He was nervous but came through it with shining colors.
