Cirque Italia

Hello Everybody!

Happy Friday!  We have some friends coming to visit us for the week or so, so I may not be online as much.  But know that we are going to make memories that I can scrap for later! :)

Speaking of memories, I wanted to share with you a layout I finished last night.  It's for a challenge at Let's Scrap that ended last night, but don't worry.  They always have challenges so I am sure there will be a new one very soon (if not already)!

The challenge was to use feathers and bling in honor of Mardi Gras.  Also, the DT posts tutorials and you needed to include one of those as well.  Which by the way isn't a problem because they teach all sorts of different techniques-lots of fun!

 I had purple on my mind.  I guess because of Mardi Gras but I used a shimmery purple cardstock from Wassau.  The pattern paper might be Pink Paislee.  I really don't know.  I but a stack of it at the Scrapbook Expo and threw away the name of it.  So if you recognize it-let me know :)

My husband's brother was in town and we saw the show Cirque Italia.  It was so much fun.  Our 3 year just watched.  I was worried that he might be restless but he watched it and was very good.

I included a ticket from the show on the right and put journaling pieces over some parts of it.

Here is the title.  It was a photo frame from Colorbok and was clear acetate.  I used alcohol inks (one of the DT tutorials) and I love how it turned out.  The shimmery letters are from Making Memories.

Other Materials:
Making Memories-corner, tag
Tim Hotlz Chit Chat words
Bling from Michaels
Square Rinestone brad probably Making Memories

At the show they tell you that you can take pictures just no flash.  At first I thought I had misunderstood the announcer.  But then he says to tell your friends and share you pics on facebook.  Yippee!  So the pictures are a little dark but at least I was able to take pictures! It's an awesome show and great for a Saturday afternoon! :)

As always-thank you for stopping by!  I am so glad to share my projects with you and to see your projects! Until next time my friends...Ciao!
