It's Show & Tell at Pike's Playground!

This month I have chosen to showcase (ta-ta-da-da!) one of the images from
Dustin Pike's new
Circus 12 release!

I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could use the very humorous, somewhat silly and adorable characters from Dustin's digital sets paired up with the more glamorous, vintage papers from Graphic 45. 

I hope you like it as much as I do!

The funny part is that the whole time I was coloring this image and designing my layout, I had the music from Madagascar 3, "Afro Circus", playing in my head...
Oooh, the trials and tribulations of having a 7 year old grandson!

The ornate headpiece that "Dumbo" is wearing is part of the scrap piece of trim that I used on the banner.

I had no idea when I purchased these little bicycle charm pieces what
I would use them for! Tied onto the tag with the twine,
it adds a bit of pizzaz to the card,
don't you think?

Hope you enjoyed sharing this self-imposed challenge with me today!

If you want some of Dustin's magnificent, hilarious, over-the-big-top

Or better yet, become a Monthly Member,
and get everything as soon as it is released!
