Chic Circus Wear



With baby boy's -- soon to be toddler boy :( -- first birthday party coming up, I haven't been able to make a lot of cards. My stamp collection is growing by the minute, and the postman/ UPS/ Fed Ex guys & I are almost on a first name basis. Lots and lots of stamps and party decorations are arriving.

I've been itching to create, especially since I still keep up with my fave blogs. I managed to make this one in five minutes. Mind you, there's no stamping or coloring but I like how it came out anyway.

The CS & PP are made from Taylored Expressions' March Key Ingredients kit. The brads & stickers are from the Dollar store. I added some ink to make it more graphic.

So the Lion baby (he's always growling - it's pretty funny) will be having a circus-themed party, & I've been figuring out what to wear. Discovering The Sartorialist and Garance Dore have given me lots of inspiration.

From Anthropologie:

Love the military-like embellishments!

And I'm truly excited! Second Sister is making me a custom circus necklace (here's an example of her designs).

Now to look for a top hat :)....

And Sandra showed me this little cutie the other day:

I LOVE!!!!! It would be so cute as MK's cake topper. But, alas, it does not come cheap.

I think you should wear something comfy (because you need to move around a lot) but bright (so that you'll look good in photos)!

Cute, cute card Rinne! I can't wait to hear and see the pictures from his party. I think it is going to be a blast! :)
