Goodbye Cruel World

Ladies and Gentlemen and children of all ages welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth!

This week the Circus is coming to Los Angeles and to commemorate the occasion and for your viewing enjoyment let me introduce the one and only Le Cirque mini album and Circus wagon. (applause)

Whenever anyone mentions the Circus I get a giggle in the pit of my stomach. Unless you suffer from coulrophobia or a hard core animal activist, no matter how old you are, there is something for everyone at the Circus. Popcorn, beautiful ladies atop dancing horses, trapeze artists that fly through the air with the greatest of ease and best of all the tiny car filled with a never ending bevy of clowns. As a child I could never understand how so many men could fit into that tiny car. I mean, I had trouble sitting in the backseat with just my two sisters.

My absolutely favorite circus is not Cirque du Soleil ( a close second) but Lady Circus, an all women troupe out of New York City. The performers are all amazing but my favorite is the glass walker. She is beautiful, talented and best of all, she is my daughter. I quite literally hold my breath every time I see her perform, and although I trust her ability, I always carry extra band aids.

The STAR of this year's Circus!

This was easy peasy to make! A bit of paper, glue, ribbons and charms
and voila, the Circus is in town!! 

I added Glitz Afternoon ephemera to the mini.

Only 14 tags so Dr. Scrapman's treatment is definitely working.
My Tiny Tag Syndrome (TTS) is under control...at least for now.

To see more of my mini watch the movie HERE.

Let's talk Circus. Like it? Hate it?

  3. I watched the video last night. The wagon is a perfect way to display that mini, although the mini is absolutely wonderful on its own.

    I'm also wondering what walking on glass is...

    1. It is exactly that! Circus performers and crazy people walk on glass giving their moms anxiety attacks!

  4. Just watched the video, and caught up on your others. You are a hoot, I just love your commentary. I also love all your mini's. I wish I had talent like that! :) I am going to have to use some of your ideas for my next one. I'd like to make one out of the $1 Mike's butterfly shape chipboard album ... I love how you embellish and all your tags. Just love it! :) Great job!!
