Pile It On #11 - Circles AND/OR Squares

Welcome to another fun week at Pile It On! This week we want you to focus on circles and/or squares on your project.

This week we have a fabulous sponsor and that is Bugaboo Stamps:

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

And they have a fabulous prize for our winner of 7 digis from their store!

Now it's time for a little inspiration from the Pile It On Team, featurig some of Bugaboo's wonderful images:
We have a very special entry from one of our team, she challenged herself to see how many challenges she could enter with one card!

Katie - Both Sides of The Paper

Now you know the challenge is Pile It On and today I decided to challenge myself and see just how many challenges I could make this card fit into. With it being this time of year there are plenty of Spring, Easter and Green challenges and I think I did a pretty good job of finding a fair few to play in, don't you?
In the spirit of honesty I checked all the challenges to see if my card fit and matched it up against their design team samples to make sure I wasn't entering an incorrect card. So if the challenge said "Spring" and the team had Easter samples then I took it to mean Easter was allowed. The "Green" challenges didn't state "all green" so I think I'm OK there. And on a final note I'm not playing for the prizes, just for the fun of seeing how many I could enter :)
Also I checked each and every challenge for their rules and I am very pleased to say that all of these have NO LIMIT RESTRICTIONS to the number of COMBINED CHALLENGES! I have added a note if they have entry limits so you can play along with them too :)
