Let's go to the circus!!

I'm super nervous, and I'll tell you why.. I'm going to be mailing in my DT application/submission tomorrow for Graphic 45.  I also mailed in my submission for Glue Arts last night. Eeps. Cross your fingers for me? I've never submitted to a Manufacturer team before, and I figure if I don't try, I'll never know.

Anyways, I have always been a fussy cutter. It takes forever, but it relaxes me if it goes right, and it adds so much to my pages when I take the time to do it. Sometimes I will grab a pair of scissors and sit in bed while watching t.v. and cut things out of a paper for a project I'm working on. Then I can finish it up the next day with the special accessories.

This little cutie has been sitting on my computer tower for well over two years now.

I can't remember if the tin was originally from Doodlebug or Queen & Company or Bo Bunny. Anyone know? It is magnetic on the back, and originally it came with a clear lid, but I lost that sometime ago. ;)
I love when a plan comes together. Grab some popcorn, funnel cakes, and check out the Big Top.

The clowns are antagonizing the crowd... or their blowing kisses, but I'm pretty sure it's the previous thought. Their incorrigible.

I used alcohol ink and distressed the metal bits.  The borders from the Le Cirque collection were perfect for decorating the inside and outside edges. For the back Rim, I used Glue Arts and some Ruby Rock it trim. I love the decorative edge it adds.

They sure are full of themselves.. they remind me of my children and furniture. ;-)

It looks so cute on the fridge too.
Hope your weekend has been full of fun.
