Life Is A Circus!!!!

Evening peeps,
Wow what a beautiful weekend, I cannot believe the gorgeous weather we have had for the last 2 bank holiday weekends it is unheard of. Anyway, didn't get out in the sunshine much yesterday as I had a stand at the Lincoln Sincerely Yours Papercraft Show and I have to say I had a wonderful time catching up with loads of lovely crafters both from in and around Lincolnshire and also loads of Blog buddies so a big HI to all of you lovelies.
Ok, so now time to share my latest SC creation with you. I just adore this fab design from Krista and as soon as it arrived I just new I had to get colouring.

The challenge over at Saturated Canary seemed just perfect 'Hair That Is Different' so I went a little mad with Trixie's locks. I coloured using my trusty Pro's and once again played with my scrumptious Frantage.

All other stamped images are from Stampendous and just seemed to work really well with Circus Trixie. I didn't want to use my normal spray of flowers, so I made a supersized ribbon flower. I created the little frame by coating a metal frame charm with Shabby White Frantage then stamped the Cheeky Lil Pierot and cut it to fit the frame then I covered it with Micro Beads.

Cheeky Little Pierot

Well I hope you like her and I'll be back soon to share more creations.

Passion for Promarkers - #199 'Anything Goes'
Crafting Life's Pieces Challenge - #58 'Sketch Challenge for May'
