Wow! There is nothing like going to the circus to bring the kid out in you! My daughter even talked me into riding a camel with her after she finished riding an elephant! We visited with clowns, did some face painting and ate a ton of junk food! Perfect day... right?! LOL!!
This weeks challenge at Frosted Designs is to use embossing. Not a problem for me! I love to emboss... as you can tell by my LO! :) The circles that run all the way across the page were cut using Simply Sweet. I then ran them through my Cuttlebug using various embossing folders so each one is a little different!
I followed that with some sanding and then I added some stickles! WOW! How fun is that?! I layered some of them (and chalked the edges) and pop dotted others to give it a dimensional look. Still not done... I added some flourishes from Ashlyn's Alphabet! Whew! Finally I added the letters that were cut using Cuttin Up, stickled them and then added some texture with my Snow Writer. Finally, that part of the page was done!

I also embossed the journaling tag using dry powder.

I used a lot of products on this one!

Dog - Everyday Paper Dolls
Clown Accessories - Paper Doll Dress Up
Letters - Cuttin' Up
Circles - Simply Sweet
Frame - Lyrical Letters
Paper: DCWV Christmas Stack, DCWV Nana's Kid Stack, and DCWV Glitter Stack
Heidi Snapp Gems
Stampology Stamp - Girl's Talk
Dew Drop Chalk Ink - Aegean Blue
Stickles in various colors, Cuttlebug using various folders, Purple Dry Embossing Powder from my stash, and misc. ribbons, brads, pom pom, and google eyes!
I think that about does it! Thank you for taking the time to look at my LO! I had a lot of fun with this one! So bright isn't it?!! LOL!!
