Buttons for Elephants!


Ok I must come clean! I have been trying to get us a circus themed project for a few months now so when this Mix~It~Up came out and we had a chance to pick our project I jumped all over trying to talk the other girls into doing something circus. I just love the idea and atmosphere that comes along with a circus. The wonderment in a child's face. The smell of popcorn mixed with cotton candy. The bright colors and glitzy costumes. Whats not to love? The idea for my card changed a few times before I settled on this. I had actually just read 'Water for Elephants' by Sara Gruen so I had to have an elephant on my card. I actually did a picture tutorial like I normally do but unfortunatly I somehow deleted all those pics. OOPS! Oh well the world has worse things to worry about ;) ~*Jen*~

Jen thanks for inspiring us to do Circus. It was fun! I love your card. I am going to have to make that cute little elephant from Sugar and Spice. Love the button balloons too. I could see this as a baby card. TFS
