Challenge 74, Eccentric Circles

Eccentric Circles

We returned home late last night from a wonderful week in Connecticut,  enjoying the  high school graduation of our oldest grandson.  I love teen agers and this group was no exception.  They were a delightful group of "screenagers".  We are proud grandparents, that is for sure.
And so...while my pile of laundry was churning away in the washer,  I set about this weeks challenge from Laura Harms.  Sometimes I wonder how she comes up with these ideas.  It is amazing actually, that she can continue to challenge us.  I love circles but this exercise made me realize that they are not necessarily easy to fill (and I still haven't exercised enough self control to leave spaces blank).
The laundry is done and put away.  The luggage has been returned to the garage.  Time to get back to life on the slow track.

  8. I like the contrast between the big circles with a small pattern and the small circles with a larger pattern. They look like magnifying classes!
