I would have loved to do a circus layout, but we haven't taken our girls to the circus just yet! I created a 12X12 layout for this challenge. I used the repetative pattern, the lion and the natural colors in the picture as my inspiration for this layout of my nephew!

2) Adhere 5X7 picture to Handsome Hunter CS.
3) Border punch Kraft CS piece along the right side using spiral punch
4) Using Versamark, Stamp image all over Kraft CS then ink all the edges with Creamy Caramel
5) Adhere Handsome Hunter CS and Kraft CS beside one another leaving a 1/2 inch gap between them.
6) Adhere Urban Oasis DSP between the Hunter and Kraft CS
7) Adhere the Delicate Dots DSP across bottom
8) Adhere all chipboard pieces
9) Journal your memories!

Thank you ladies! I think the lion is adorable too along with my nephew of course! I have to admit it isn't my favorite layout... I feel like it's missing something I just can't put my finger on what it is at the moment! LOL

Thanks Tracy!! I am too!! :)
