Everybody Loves A Clown

Hi everyone!  It is so nice to see a blue sky and some sunshine.  I live in Maryland, and this past week we were hit with two major snow storms, which dumped 50+ inches in my area.  Thankfully, I had finished my project before the snow hit.  Believe me, all I have done for the past week is shovel snow.  Here is my DT project for Frosted Designs. Their challenge this week is to use stars on your project.  I found this picture of my friend, dressed up as a clown for Halloween a few years ago.  I then remembered I had pictures of my kids from mothers day back in 2000, when they painted their faces up to look like clowns and put on a little show for me. I definitely wanted to use a circus theme on this layout.My pictures didn't photograph very well, seeing as we have had so much bad weather and very little sunshine lately.
The paper is from the K and Company paper stack, Wild Saffron.  For the top of the layout I cut out strips of red and white paper, inked them with some chestnut roan ink, and then used some large scalloped scissors I found at the dollar store.  I used several Cricut cartridges, Storybook, George and A Child's Year.  The frames are by Mind's Eye, and the balloons were cut using a Quickutz die.
