I got to play with the Punky Sprouts - Spunky Sprout Album and combined it with the TaDa Creative Studios - Big Top Collection.
For the cover I cut the two big top tents from the "Step Right Up" Paper, the Ticket and the word Circus is from the "Snippets and Clippets" Paper. Add some Glimmer Mist and the cover is almost complete.

Page 1 & 2 are dedicated to the clowns. The clown journaling tag is from the "Snippets and Clippets". The hat I punched out of the "Clowning Around" and then rounded the corners. On the accompanying page the paper is "Side Show" with the Clown piece which I popped up from the "Balancing Act".

Page 3 is a canvas page in the punky sprouts album. I embellished with several circles to mimic the hula hoops in the photo. The strip of stars, journaling circle and the amazing tag are all from the "Snippets and Clippets". I just love the Snippets and Clippets and used almost the entire sheet in this album.

Page 4 are two chipboard tags which I kept very simple and just covered the entire tag with the "Big Top Mini Mes" for the top tag and used some leftovers of one of the Oooh La La Layers and a piece from the "Balancing Act" paper.

Page 5 is the other side of the tags. Now I didn't have any other photos that were working on these tags so I decided to just decorate with paper. On both of these tags I decorated with the "Side Show" Paper and the Circus ticket is from the "Balancing Act" paper. On the bottom tag the Popcorn is from the "Snippets & Clippets" then I took a sunburst punch to the "Clowning Around" paper for the candy apple and snowcone icons.

Page 6 I covered with the back of the "Side Show" paper and added the Canon from "Balancing Act". For the title block I used the "Mini Mes".

Page 7 is a cardboard piece in the Punky Sprouts album and I used many strips from "Clowning Around" and "Step Right Up" and the Juggling Pins is from the "Balancing Act" paper.

Page 8 is another canvas page which I used both sides of the "Step Right Up" paper - the red base and the scalloped circle, and the oh so cute I had to use Trapeze Monkey from the "Balancing Act".

Page 9 & 10 are Elephants!!!! Everyone Loves Elephant's right?? I cut the banner's out of the "Side Show" paper, the Elephant block and the small touch of peanuts was from "Balancing Act". On the acrylic page the super cute Elephant parade is from the "Clowning Around" paper.

Page 11 When designing with the acrylic pages you have to be mindful of the "other" side. So the Red background is actually the back side from the Elephant page. Then I took my square punch and punched blocks from "Step Right Up", the back side of the "Snippets & Clippets" the front and back side of "Side Show" and one of the "Mini Mes".

Back Cover of the Spunky Sprout Album. I used the train cars from the "Clowning Around" paper and another Circus tent this one from one of the Oooh La La Papers it was the Big Top Trio in Macintosh.

Hope you enjoyed the TaDa and Punky Sprouts Blog Hop!!!
