Life's a Circus

Hi there 
I'm here to share my DT project for this weeks challenge at 
Jan has set the challenge of Fair or Carnival ... though I guess my project looks more circus Lol!

Here's your inspiration photo


... and this is my interpretation


I took inspiration from those little tents ... they always seem to have "step right up" alongside the stalls so I printed this ticket from Silhouette America and the little elephant too


The thing is my sweet friend Jan sent me a whole box of lovely things a while back and amongst them was the "Life's a Circus" stamp and I couldn't resist using it with this card ... It just seemed right ... plus it's kinda how I'm feeling right now ... 


Once again my lovely team mates have outdone themselves with their gorgeous creations ... I hope you will take a moment to stop by the blog and check them out ... Jan is our featured designer this week using digitals from our sponsor THATB

So do you like carnivals? ... I used to love the fairground when I was young ... the smells, the music, the squeals and the laughter  .... 
I hope you can find time to join us this week ... we'd love to see your creations

Have a lovely day

~ Ros ~

Oh I LOVE this! So much fun and that elephant is pretty cute too. I remember going to a circus a couple of years ago- no animals involved!! I know they don't always get treated well so maybe it was a good thing but it didn't seem quite like a proper circus. Hope you have a lovely day!! x
