Life is a Circus 33

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, August 18, 2013 @ 9:01 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's Monday so it's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge on the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog! Just a reminder that we changed name a couple of weeks ago, from Simon Says Stamp & Show, but everything else still remains the same. This week's theme is all about a carnival.


I was inspired by the vintage Circus Poster to create this wall hanging to remind me that "Life is a Circus".
I've always admired the various Circus Posters throughout the years so I created a wall hanging featuring a beautifully stamped Vintage Poster.
I used a few Grand Labels to die cut a piece of corrugated cardboard and patterned paper, layered to create the base of the wall hanging then decorated with multiple Tattered Flowers
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you join in the fun! Please be sure to stop by the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog to see all the amazing DT inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)
