Life's a Circus

Hi!

Do you sometimes feel that your life is like living under the big top?

This week has been one of those crazy weeks for me and the weekend can't arrive soon enough! :) I have a special weekend planned with just my hubby and I'm really looking forward to a little one-on-one!

Anyway, today I have a scrapbook page to share with you. A fun page to document a zany moment from the Martin house!


Yep, that's underwear on his head! Christopher was acting like a clown dancing around and jumping on his trampoline sporting briefs on his head!


I thought this circus themed digital kit was perfect for these photos. 'Cirque' is the name of this new kit sold at Two Peas in a Bucket. I love the bright colors, stars, stripes and oodles of very cool accents. There's a lot of vintage ones you should check out. The designer, Polka Dot Pixels, is a fave of mine!


I did lots of stitching, layering, embossing and some inking to create this page. And yes, I had to use a couple border punches and Kraft stock! My second to the last sheet of Kraft stock! Oh no! This is not good! Maybe I can make a pit stop at Archiver's this weekend? Cross your fingers that they have plenty in stock! ;)

Well, I hope to get a chance to visit your blog today! As I mentioned, this week has been a whirlwind to say the least and I follow so many of you! Like hundreds! I so enjoy seeing what you are creating! Have a swell day and come back tomorrow for another crafty share! :) Kathy

What a goofball! Christopher just cracks me up. My brother actually used to come out with underwear on his head sometimes, too, when we were growing up. Used to call himself Underwear Man and he would chase me around the house. Used to make my friend and I laugh all the time.
Your page is just beautiful, my friend! Love, love this design. That circus themed banner is perfect, and I adore the kraft and the layered stars.
Hope your week mellows out for you and that you and the Dan-O have a fantastic weekend together. :)
