My Life is Like a 3 Ring Circus!

Come One Come All we had a ball!
This was Dax's first time going to the circus.  He was not excited at all! But once we got there he warmed up to the whole idea, as long as he didn't have to get anywhere near a clown! Funny how some kids are scared of clowns!
 I wanted to paper piece a small circus tent, but of course I never create what I think I am going to create! So I made a huge circus tent.  I really enjoyed making this layout, I held on to this paper line for almost 2 years! I believe it is Reminisce.  TM still has some of the cut-outs but the paper is long gone, but I'm sure you could find  something close.
This is a design that I copied and altered from my scrappin' friend Andrea.  She is super fun to scrap with, we always have fun together, lots of fun conversations!  She is very clever and searches the web for fun layouts, plus we really have the same scrapping style.  So when we get together she always lets me lift some of her ideas.  I am so busy creating classes that sometimes my ideas are long gone by the time I do my own stuff.  I wish I had a picture of her layout to show you two different layouts with the same sketch! Again this was the same paper line and the cute little popcorn box is from Hobby Lobby.
