Scrappy Sunday – Circus Themed Birthday

Circus Themed Birthday

Our little Amelia just turned a year old last week and I decided to do a circus theme.  My inspiration for the colours came from this Lion Coffee which was given to us by my sister in law.

I made a circus banner out of cardstock…

and some tissue paper balls (for which I have found a quick Youtube tutorial here for you).  I only used 5 sheets of tissue and then cut it in half once I had folded it all up.  I also just used fishing line to tie them up so they looked like they were floating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I got some old school popcorn and hot dog containers from the dollar store.

Along with some plastic animals to decorate the cupcakes and cake with.

I used some scrapbook paper to create the cones for the home made sweet potatoe and regular fries.

As this was such a big event I decided to dedicate three pages to it instead of the usual two.  I printed my photos at home onto matte paper and they don’t seem as nice.  Maybe I need to try a new brand.

  I used the decor from the party for accents in the layouts.  I also tried to tone down the colour a bit with a little black scattered throughout.  I even took my new chicken wire stamp and applied it to the background in some areas and did a little doodling.

Boy, lots of pics today.  Have a great week!!!!
