It's summertime - heat, barbeques, swimming, sunbathing, and circuses!
I love my 7gypsies printer's tray because it is so perfect for changing it to reflect the seasons and my current color choices - last summer's blue and white and February's pinkness - but right now it's all about yellows, reds, and oranges with a bit of turquoise thrown into the mix.
I cut out ephemera from the Gecko Galz Crazy Clowns and arranged them into some of the openings. I cut 2 tiny ephemera images to fit into the Gecko Galz locket pendants (in the bottom right corner) and I even added a Gecko Galz button pin with the fun lime green Gecko logo.
I added some Prima flowers and ribbons, some Making Memories flowers and one of their fun vintage groove jewelry pendants along with Prima "Believe" embellishment. I also included one of my handmade ruched flowers in a red gingham with a Jenni Bowlin button as the center. The button with the Chinese character is from my collection as is the Bingo game piece.
And then I really went crazy, adding an actual matchbox and spool of thread.
What a fun project - it makes me think of the circuses that my grandfather used to take me to when I was a little girl and also of the fun Ringling Circus Museum in Sarasota. If you ever go to Sarasota, be sure to visit it!
