We are right in the heart of summer here in New Jersey and that means it is fair and carnival time. I couldn't come up with any other way to use this theme except a layout. That's right, here is my second one! My daughters are convinced they will turn me into a scrapbooker yet!

As I am writing this post, spell check tells me I have misspelled the title, so I will be going back and fixing that.... duh....

I started by laying out all my pieces on my Gypsy. I put them on three separate layers.

The tent is from Create a Critter and is cut at 2.75 inches. I put the layer on twice and then hide all the cuts but the door so I could have that a different color.

The lion is from Create a Critter and is cut at 1.75 inches  I also cut out the word Time on this layer and that is 1.20 inches from Art Philosophy.

 The banner is from Art Philosophy and is cut at 1.25 inches. I placed the letters in the triangles and sized each one separately. They are approximately .75 inches.

For the photo mats I used the ticket punch from Stampin Up and black gel pen stitching.
I inked the edges of all the pieces of the tent and stitched in white gel pen. The lion I left alone. For the border I used the Fiskars Scallop border punch and stitched in white gel pen.

I threaded some thin ribbon through the banner and attached with pop dots.

Please stop in everyday and check out all the creative ideas for our Carnival week!
